Hi everyone, im unable to open my workbook due to the code below

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim user as string

User = Inputbox ("Please type your password")
If typename(user)="albert"
Msgbox "thank you"
Else
activeworkbook.Close

End sub

I tried a lot typing albert in the inputbox but still closing. Need your expertise on this. That workbook means a lot to me. Thank you!!

Temporarily change your Trust Center settings in Excel to "Disable all macros with notification", then try opening the workbook.
