    Worksheets hidden dependant on password used to open workbook

    Hi All,

    I'm hoping to once again tap into the vast excel forum brain for help.

    I have a workbook with 20 worksheets. What I would like to do is password protect the workbook as normal, but, have multiple passwords to open. When opened certain worksheets will be hidden dependant on the password used.

    e.g.

    Password entered is: SALES
    Worksheets visable = 1-10

    password entered is: ADMIN
    Worksheets visable = 1-20

    I have been scouring the web for an answer and have got close but not close enough.

    Hoping you can help

    Regards

    SBG1

    Hi scooterboygnu1,

    I am assuming you get the Secondary Password using VBA of some sort. The following can easily be integrated with your VBA code. If this is NOT the case, please post a sample workbook, and I can integrate my code into your sample workbook.

    The following code will hide all Sheets except:
    a. SALES - Sheets 1 to 10
    b. ADMIN - Sheets 1 to 20
    c. OTHER - Sheet 1 (Excel requires that at least one sheet be visible)

    Thanks for the response Lewis. If I could take you up on the offer to intergrate into the attached example sheet I would be grateful? The green worksheets are to be viewed when "Sales" is entered and the User Guide can be sheet that remaing visible.

    Thanks again.

    Hi,

    Try the attached workbook. When the workbook opens, only the 'User Guide' sheet is displayed. I added a 'Shape' in the 'User Guide' Sheet that requests the Secondary Password and Displays the appropriate sheets after the Secondary Password is entered. It is simple, and allows multiple retries.

    I modified the routine to display or hide the Worksheets based on the Secondary Password (case insensitive):
    'ADMIN' - Display all sheets
    'SALES' - Display only sheets with green tabs (colorindex 43)
    Otherwise - Display on sheet 'User Guide'
