hi

i know how to password protect a document and cells, but is there a way of password protecting a page so a user cant enter the page, not even look at the page without having to enter a password,

also can it be assigned to a hyper-link/ macro

many thanks

Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

You can make the Sheet very hidden (xlSheetVeryHidden) via the worksheet module Property window in the VBE. Then you can code the opening of the sheet to propmpt the user for a password.

You need to create a userform with a command button and textbox on it, change the textbox properties "PasswordChar" for whatever you would like to see instead of the actual text, add this code to the commandbutton
Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
If Me.TextBox1.Value <> "password" Then
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
End If
Unload Me
End Sub
add this code to the thisworkbook code module
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
'check if it's the first sheet
If ActiveSheet.Name = "Sheet1" Then Exit Sub
'check system for your login name
If Environ("username") = "your username here" Then Exit Sub
UserForm1.Show
End Sub

It's just a quickly knocked up thing and there is much more you can do for multiple access....etc but it does mean that they must have macros enabled.
