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.
