Hey all

simple macro to protect a workbook, I'm just getting stuck on determining syntax so you can specifiy if the windows and structure options?

Sub Macro1()

ActiveWorkbook.Protect ("password")
With ActiveWorkbook
'.Structure:=True, Windows:=False '**** this part I'm stuck

End Sub

thanks

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.
