I have a problem with a worksheet that I have.
I was going to set a password on the code but I don’t think I got round to it…..HOWEVER
Although I can view the code, edit it, resave the workbook etc etc etc , I cant now set a password to protect the code.
It only comes up with the VBAProject Pasword box as you would normally see when you try to view code that is locked.

Any ideas please?

Thanks

2) please upload the file, maybe we can figure out what's wrong...

It is possible to set a password on the code without locking the project for viewing and it sounds as though that is what you have done. I suggest entering whatever password you were thinking of using before hand - perhaps you did enter it but thought that not checking the Lock project for viewing box would mean the password wasn't applied.
