    Bypassing password entry

    Hi - I have a master spreadsheet that contains links to several other worksheets (some of which have passwords) and everytime I (or one of my managers) open the master workbook it asks for the password.

    Is there a code (or macro - though not sure what I am doing with a macro - be warned!!) that can stop having to input the passwords everytime the workbook is opened?

    Already asked this question here on the Mr Excel forum with the same title FYI.

    Thanks
    Iain

    To unprotect all sheets when you open the Workbook, you can use this code.
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    Put this in ThisWorkbook section. (Alt + F11) -> ThisWorkbook
    Replace abc with your password

    Rule 03: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question. If you have fewer than 10 posts here, you will not be able to post a link, but you must still tell us where else you have asked the question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    If you have less than 10 posts, do not try to copy and paste the link. Instead, type the link out in your thread.

    No further help to be offered, please, until the OP has complied with this request.
    Please familiarise yourself with the rules before posting. You can find them here.

    Re: Bypassing password entry

    I note there is a fundamental difference between your problem descriptions here and at Mr Excel (https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/excel-...ord-entry.html). Here you refer to "several other worksheets"; there you refer to "approximately 20 other workbooks". Any solution will depend on using code applicable to the situation you're actually dealing with.

    Fair answer Macropod - currently there are about 9 workbooks linked to the master spreadsheet but as our workers go back into schools I envisage there being about 20 linked workbooks in the upcoming month.
