Hi VBA Gurus,

I have more than 100 excel workbooks in a folder that I need to open each workbook individually and protect multiple worksheets within a workbook using same password.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could share VBA code...

thanks

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

I don't know how to do this in VBA, especially with 100 workbooks.
However, ASAP Utilities (free) has an option where you can select numerous sheets in 1 workbook and password them all with the same password.
Might give you a start.
