I have a password protected workbook that many users need to view. Is there a way it can be opened without having the Passwork box open asking for the password and then having to select Read Only?
 

Excel Facts

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

If I have understood correctly, this ought to do it. But I would think twice before hardcoding a password. At least be sure to password protect your VBA project.
Code:
Workbooks.Open "C:\MyFile.Xls", ReadOnly:=True, Password:="TooManySecrets"
