Lock project for viewing - VBA

I know it is bad practice but I have little choice but to use SendKeys in the situation I am in.

I have a master program where I am running a loop through several other sheets where I import code into its vba editor.  This part works fine.  But I want to add a step where it then protects each sheet by locking its project for viewing.  But when I run throguh the code, it tries to protect the master program and not each individual sheet.

How can I tell it to protect the other sheets?  It this possible?

ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="Secret"

Also if the sheets are in another workbook and the code you are adding to each sheet is the same you can use a template that already contains the code.

You can protect the worksheet modules separately from the workbook. Locking a VBA Project works only on the whole workbook.

If you use a reference to the workbook or sheet to protect instead of Active... you will be able to work while debugging in your master.
