Hello,

I am trying to use VBA to set the "Access content programmatically" checkbox to true within the permissions of a file (File-> Protect Workbook -> Restrict Access -> Restricted Access)

When you go to the Permission dialogue and select "More Options", it allows you to select several checkboxes (such as "Print Content", "Access content programatically", etc. I am looking to do this automatically using VBA. However, when I try and do that manually and record a macro, the macro is blank. Is there a way to do this automatically? I've attached a screenshot of the permissions dialogue box.

Thanks!!!

No screenshot so I'm not sure exactly what you are referring to.

However it sounds like something that is not possible to do using code for, valid, security reasons.
