Hi

How do can I check if a workbook is already protected?

I think it should be something like this but not too sure.

If ActiveWorkbook.Protection = True Then
MsgBox ("Please unlock the workbook first")
Exit Sub
Else....

Thanks in advance

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Thanks, but I made a mistake - I meant how do I check if the worksheet is protected? Is it similar?

ProtectDrawingObjects
ProtectScenarios
