Happy Holidays!

Is it possible to password protect (from viewing) a single worksheet in an Excel 2010 spreadsheet? In other words...

I have a spreadsheet with 5 worksheets in it. I want to password protect one of the sheets so anyone who tries to view it will be unable to do so.

Thanks...

Hi

Even  if the security of such a Password pretty low you could use in XL2010

set your sheet as veryHidden ( it is only visible in the VBE

Sub Macro1()
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1).Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
End Sub

Open in new window


And protect your Project with a password
