Hi,

I have the below code to protect ranges. I want the password to be able to take two answers, so SPW1 = "CP" or "Generic" etc

Can anyone amend to allow this?

Thanks
Seamus








Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim sPW1 As String, sPW2 As String, sPW3 As String, sPW4 As String, sPW5 As String, sPW6 As String, sPW7 As String, sPW8 As String, sPW9 As String
sPW1 = "CP"
sPW1 = "CP"
sPW2 = "CR"
sPW3 = "EW"
sPW4 = "EW"
sPW5 = "MJ"
sPW6 = "SC"
sPW7 = "SH"
sPW8 = "SW"
sPW9 = "ALL"

If Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r1" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW1) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r1"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r2" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW2) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r2"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r3" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW3) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r3"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r4" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW4) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r4"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r5" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW5) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r5"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r6" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW6) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r6"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r7" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW7) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r7"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r8" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW8) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r8"
    End If
ElseIf Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
    If Range("I2") <> "r9" Then
        If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW9) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r9"
    End If
   
Else
    Range("I2") = "Nothing"
End If
End Sub

Function PWordIsCorrect(sPass As String) As Boolean
Dim s As String
s = InputBox("Enter the password", "Password required")
If s = sPass Then PWordIsCorrect = True
If s <> sPass Then MsgBox "Wrong Password"


End Function

Not sure I follow your logic, but try:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim sPW(1 To 9) As String
    ' use the | character as a delimiter between valid passwords
    sPW(1) = "CP|General"
    sPW(2) = "CR|Blah"
    sPW(3) = "EW"
    sPW(4) = "EW"
    sPW(5) = "MJ"
    sPW(6) = "SC"
    sPW(7) = "SH"
    sPW(8) = "SW"
    sPW(9) = "ALL"
    
    If Not Application.Intersect(Range("xyz"), Target) Is Nothing Then
        If Range("I2").Value <> "r1" Then
            If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(1)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2").Value = "r1"
    
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r2" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(2)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r2"
            
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r3" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(3)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r3"
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r4" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(4)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r4"
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r5" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(5)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r5"
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r6" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(6)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r6"
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r7" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(7)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r7"
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r8" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(8)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r8"
        ElseIf Range("I2") <> "r9" Then
                If Not PWordIsCorrect(sPW(9)) Then Range("A1").Select Else Range("I2") = "r9"
           
        Else
            Range("I2") = "Nothing"
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Function PWordIsCorrect(sPass As String, Optional sDelimiter As String = "|") As Boolean
    Dim s As String
    Dim n As Long
    Dim vPass
    PWordIsCorrect = False
    s = InputBox("Enter the password", "Password required")
    vPass = Split(sPass, sDelimiter)
    For n = LBound(vPass) To UBound(vPass)
        If s = vPass(n) Then
            PWordIsCorrect = True
            Exit Function
        End If
    Next n
    MsgBox "Wrong Password"


End Function
