Hi there

I have a workbook that is shared with other users, but have information on one sheet that i don not want the other parties to be able to see or access.

Is there any way to worksheet within a workbook?

many thanks

Ensure you are on the sheet you want to hide.

On the Home tab, go to Format. Under visibility click on Hide & Unhide. Select Hide Sheet.

You could use some VBA to hide the sheet and password protect it. I added the following to one of my workbooks and assigned a macro to a button that runs the code:

Sub GetCompApproval()</SPAN>
Dim Password As String</SPAN>
Dim RetryPass As String</SPAN>
Password = InputBox(prompt:="ENTER PASSWORD TO ACCESS THIS SHEET", Title:="Password")</SPAN>
'MsgBox prompt:=Password</SPAN>
If Password = "" Then</SPAN>
End</SPAN>
ElseIf Password <> "HERE YOUR CHOSEN PASSWORD" Then</SPAN>
RetryPass = MsgBox(prompt:="SORRY PASSWORD IS INCORRECT" & vbCr & _</SPAN>
"PLEASE SPEAK TO OWNER" & vbCr & _</SPAN>
"if you need a password", _</SPAN>
Title:="Access Denied", _</SPAN>
Buttons:=vbRetryCancel + vbExclamation)</SPAN>
If RetryPass = vbRetry Then</SPAN>
GetCompApproval</SPAN>
Else</SPAN>

End</SPAN>

End If</SPAN>
Else</SPAN>
Sheets("SHEET NAME").Visible = xlSheetVisible</SPAN>
Sheets("SHEET NAME").Activate</SPAN>
