When you selected protection did you de-select the options below

Select Locked Cells
Select unlocked cells

Also what version office are you using as i have tested this in office 2010

I try this command on workbook_open():

Application.CommandBars("Data").Controls("Filter").Controls("Advanced Filter...").Enabled = False

but when another user open it, still appear "Advanced Filter"...

Poor form to cancel the request when you haven't solved the problem as per your comment " but when another user open it, still appear "Advanced Filter". "

Here is an article that steps it out.

Also I have tried this on Excel 2003 between two machine and users can not un-hide the hidden sheet.
