Hi all

I have recorded a macro to find and replace certain values within a workbook and then open the next workbook and do the same. The only problem is that the worksheets are protected and therefore a password has to be entered before the find and replace can work.

Is there anyway to incorporate a password into the macro, so that the worksheets can work independantly.

Many thanks in advance.

‘Unprotect activesheet
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "Your Password"
‘Protect activesheet
ActiveSheet.Protect "Your Password"

Or a specific sheet

‘Unprotect sheet
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("sheet name").Unprotect "Your Password"
‘Protect sheet
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("sheet name").Protect "Your Password"
