I have a spreadsheet that I locked down with a password so users couldn't accidentally do things to wreck it. My supervisor now wants to be able to edit it and I have tried to comment out all the sections of protecting the worksheets in the project and it still is protecting itself after I click on a button. The button previously had .protect code in it and is commented out now.

Where else do I look to get rid of the extra bits of code that protect it?

The situation isn't entirely clear, so maybe this won't be suitable - just comment out ALL code.
