Right-click the sheet's tab and click protect sheet, then enter a password you want to use for unprotecting the sheet

I wasn't clear in my original questions.  Sorry.

i want to password protect the sheet from someone viewing it.  Not just elements in the sheet, but actually viewing it.

Right-click on the worksheet that you want to hide and protect
Click Hide.
Go to Review > click Protect Workbook and enter a password, ensure that Structure is checked and click OK.
Save and close the Excel.

When you re-open the workbook, the sheet that you have hidden is hidden until you click Unprotect Workbook and enter the correct password.
