Is there a way where I can protect the VBA codes or macros so that users do not accidentally tamper and modify them

Good afternoon aparna

But always remember that all Excel's protection can be bypassed, and while the VBE password protection is a bit stronger than the worksheet / workbook protection it's nowhere near as robust as its "File Open" counterpart.

That said, it should keep casual users out. Just a point worth making...
