"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

i mean there are easy ways to put a password protection, but they are always frangible. if users wants to get into that.

there are some websites that offer protection that are good but not best. like http://www.lockxls.com/product.asp  which is sell commerical license protecting the workbook vba interface.

however, if you intend to make it bullet proof, then you could create a COMM add-in compiling your add-ins in DLL files.
