I have a workbook with an ever-changing number of worksheets (between 2 and 8).  Each worksheet has its own password and as soon I open the workbook up, I'd like to be prompted to unprotect each of the sheets.
Can someone help me code this?

Every sheet has a different password, or they are just protected?

Each sheet has its own password.  The Jan sheet has password "January", The feb sheet has "february", etc.
