Folks,
When I activate a worksheet  I call "NotifyUserGeneral":
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
NotifyUserGeneral
End Sub

Open in new window

I have a module that contains "NotifyUserGeneral" below:
Option Explicit
Private mMessageDisplayed As Boolean
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
    NotifyUserGeneral
End Sub
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub NotifyUserGeneral()
If ActiveSheet.ProtectContents = True And Not mMessageDisplayed Then
    MsgBox "Except for the data cells shaded in light blue with black font the rest of this worksheet is protected!"
    mMessageDisplayed = True
End If
End Sub
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub NotifyUserCell()
If ActiveSheet.ProtectContents = True And ActiveCell.Locked = True Then
    Msbbox "That cell is protected and cannot be changed!"
End If
End Sub
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Open in new window

However, I keep getting "Sub or Function not defined"  error when I activate the worksheet?

Hi,

Private before your sub means that it can only be used in the module .

so change to

Sub NotifyUserGeneral()
If ActiveSheet.ProtectContents = True And Not mMessageDisplayed Then
    MsgBox "Except for the data cells shaded in light blue with black font the rest of this worksheet is protected!"
    mMessageDisplayed = True
End If
End Sub

Open in new window
