Hi Experts.
Note: I tried below in reddit, I recently joined but it's been 12 hours, my question does not even show up. So come back here in trust.

Problem statement: Sharepoint Excel which is password protected has a bug, users can clear off the filters, but they cannot set it back as it requires password.
What I have done till now:
What I did was to create a simple macro, but to deploy in Sharepoint, saved as add-ins (.xlam) but, I want users to easily click with hidden code, as it is password protected.
I could only see macros can be associated with icon and can be added in Ribbon but add-ins, I googled but I am bit confused, as most of the material is to create a new ribbon with XML.
Please can you help me.
Here is the basic code, I have written

VBA Code:
Option Explicit

Sub SecurefileFilteron()

Call UnProtectPassword
Call RPFilterONOFF
Call ProtectPassword
End Sub

Public Sub ProtectPassword()
ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="test123", AllowFiltering:=True
End Sub

Public Sub UnProtectPassword()
ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="test123"
End Sub

Public Sub RPFilterONOFF()
    Rows("4:4").AutoFilter
'    Rows("4:4").Select.AutoFilter
''    Selection.AutoFilter

End Sub
