I will have a number of users using one spreadsheet.

Is there a way of attaching a password to a particular view.

E.g. If a user from Div A opened the sheet and typed there password in. A filter would then automatically run to allow the user to only view Div A information.

How about using "inputbox" and;

if password ="abc" then...
if password = "123" then...

etc.

OK, don't know how much you know but try this.
If you want to email me the workbook and explain a little I will try and help...


Sub auto_open()

pword = InputBox("What is your password?")
If pword = "abc" Then GoTo abc
If pword = "xyz" Then GoTo xyz
If pword<> "abc" And pword<> "xyz" Then GoTo nopword
'use above if you want people with out either password not have access

abc:
'your code here for people with abc password

Exit Sub

xyz:
'your code here for people with xyz password
Exit Sub

nopword:
MsgBox ("Incorrect password")
ActiveWorkbook.Close
Exit Sub

'use this if you want people with out either password not have access
End Sub
