    I have spent hundreds of hours writing a spreadsheet for calculating job times and costs. Entering the product details and costs was particularly soul destroying.

    Anyway, I don't want some lazy good for nothing from my office copying my work and then spreading it around as his work! I will share the sheet with those who have helped (thankfully we do have some team players) but I need to protect it with a password.

    I can't use the password protection in Excel as that is easily defeated. Is there a way to distribute this sheet and code it in VB Editor with a unique password? My obvious concern is that someone will pass it on along with their password and then I have been duped.

    Any ideas?
