You can do all worksheets. But you could use on "BeforeClose" event in workbook module. This is for worksheet. But you can do the same with workbook.

Code:
ActiveSheet.Protect UserInterfaceOnly:=True

If you need to change something, then just add a line to change to "False". Then you don't need a password.

Or have I misunderstood?
