when i record myself protecting a sheet the code is
ActiveWorkbook.Protect Structure:=True, Windows:=False
is there a way to automatically propagate a password without having to manually put it in each time?

You're almost there. Try

Sub ProtectIt()
ActiveWorkbook.Protect ("Password"), Structure:=True, Windows:=False
End Sub
