Hi,

Try below code. Change the password from 123456 to whatever you would like it to be.You need to enter this code in the main workheet in vba and save your file as as xlsm.

Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
'to password protect Report Sheet
Dim xSheetName As String
xSheetName = "Report"
If Application.ActiveSheet.Name = xSheetName Then
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    Application.ActiveSheet.Visible = False
    xTitleId = "Please Enter The Password"
    response = Application.InputBox("Password", xTitleId, "", Type:=2)
    If response = "123456" Then
        Application.Sheets(xSheetName).Visible = True
        Application.Sheets(xSheetName).Select
    End If
End If
Application.Sheets(xSheetName).Visible = True
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

That code does not protect the sheet at all!
