Hi,

Could someone tell me if there is a one-line piece of vb code that when used once, will protect a worksheet, and when activated again, will unprotect a worksheet...

A similar one I used for displaying workbook tabs is below:

ActiveWindow.DisplayWorkbookTabs = Not (ActiveWindow.DisplayWorkbookTabs)

I just can't seem to get one working for sheet protection. Hope someon can help.

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

You could use something like

Code:
If ActiveSheet.ProtectContents Then
    ActiveSheet.Unprotect
Else
    ActiveSheet.Protect
End If
