    Protect UserInterFaceOnly:=True ONLY to VISIBLE worksheets WITHOUT a password

    The workbook has mutilple authors responsible for various sheets, so I cannot be assured to always know each sheet password
    There are Protected sheets With and Without passwords
    There are visible & xlveryhidden sheets

    I want to set Protect UserInterFaceOnly:=True ONLY to VISIBLE worksheets WITHOUT a password

    But I canít figure out how to say ws. Password = ""

    Unlike when you don't provide a password, supplying the wrong password raises an error which is suppressed by the On Error Resume Next statement.

    SO the code I requested runs without error, however, VBA is still restricted from editing the sheets which is the purpose of UserInterFaceOnly:=True

    It works for me, although subject to the usual limits of the UserInterfaceOnly argument.
