This macro locks the sheet when user clicks the button I added. But the following macro allows the user to unlock the sheet without a password by simply clicking "unprotect" in Excel 2007. How can I make it so that it prompts user for a password such that it won't unlock without the password.

With ActiveWindow
.Top = 7.75
.Left = 973
End With
Range("I26").Select
ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
End Sub
