XLEnableSelection

When you set a workshets properties in visual basic to xlNoSelection then protect the worksheet, it works OK but when you come back in to the spreadsheet (having svaed it ) it defaults back No Reststrictions - how can I stop this happening?

You can't. You must set this each time the workbook is opened. You could put some code like this in the Workbook_Open procedure:-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheet1.EnableSelection = xlNoSelection
End Sub
