As long as I'm asking, what's the code to protect and unprotect a sheet with a password?

Here it is without the pw.

ActiveSheet.Unprotect

ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True

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

the Unprotect and Protect methods have an optional parameter, called password, which is a string.

ActiveSheet.Unprotect "Password"
