Is there a way to protect the VBA code from being viewed by others? Can I compile the code?

Thank you
 

Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

In the VB Editor right click on the module name and choose the VBAProject Properties item from the list.

Select the Protection tab and tick the lock project for viewing.

Put in the password and confirm it.

This will lock the project against viewing.

Note that you will have to close the file in Excel and reopen it for this to take effect.
