You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Try the following:

Sub unlockall()

For i = 1 To Worksheets.Count
Worksheets(i).Activate
ActiveSheet.Unprotect

Next i

End Sub


If you do want to go down the password route:

Sub unlockall()

For i = 1 To Worksheets.Count

Worksheets(i).Activate
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "My Password"

Next i

End Sub
