Hi Experts,
I found the following code but it is for Excel 2000 and does not work for my Excel 2007.
What need to be changed?
The name of the sheet it "Matrix" but I would like to name it COA-Matrix or COA_Matrix.
thanks for help

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    Matrix.Protect Password:="123456", DrawingObjects:=True, _
        contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, _
        userinterfaceonly:=True
    Matrix.EnableAutoFilter = True
End Sub

Assuming you have renamed then try

Chris
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    Sheets("COA-Matrix").Protect Password:="123456", DrawingObjects:=True, _
        contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, _
        userinterfaceonly:=True
    Sheets("COA-Matrix")EnableAutoFilter = True
End Sub
