    A tweak to a prior thread on Password Protected Drop-down boxes

    Back on 9/2/10 a question was asked by phaiz_nova87 about password protecting drop-down boxes. JBeaucaire provided an excellent response. I don't know how to link to it other than mention "excel-general/744273-password-for-dropdown-list.html".

    The code JBeaucaire provided is below - it requires the user to click on their name, and then enter a password in order to go on. The script below refers to cell B7 (which was a location for the drop down box in the sample spreadsheet provided by phaiz_nova87. My question is - Is there a ready way to apply this logic to a number of cells on the same page? I have dropdown boxes in cells U13:V36 for example (a lot of dropdowns, I know!) Can the logic in the script below be relatively easily changed to apply to all of these 48 cells?

    Thank you so much for your time and attention!!!

    You should be able to just change B7 in the original code to U13:V36
