Password protect them, although it's not totally foolproof.
Right click the project in the Project window > VBAProject Properties > Protection > check the box & enter password.
Save, close & reopen the workbook

Thanks, Tried that and re-opened the wb. Went tot teh macro and it asked for my PW. I did not enter it but was able to modify and save it anyway.
Is ther another option?

Did you select "Lock project from viewing"?

In that case did you set a password?

Then if you try to view the code & don't enter a password it should not let you in.
If it is letting you in to the code, are you sure you protected the correct workbook?

Yes. Just will not work. That is why I was looking for an alternative system.
