AllowEditRange.ChangePassword Method (Excel)
Published: July 16, 2012
Changes the password for a range that can be edited on a protected worksheet.
In this example, Microsoft Excel allows edits to range "A1:A4" on the active worksheet, notifies the user, changes the password for this specified range, and notifies the user of the change. The worksheet must be unprotected before running this code.
Sub UseChangePassword() Dim wksOne As Worksheet Dim strPassword As String Set wksOne = Application.ActiveSheet ' Establish a range that can allow edits ' on the protected worksheet. strPassword = InputBox("Please enter the password for the range") wksOne.Protection.AllowEditRanges.Add _ Title:="Classified", _ Range:=Range("A1:A4"), _ Password:=strPassword strPassword = InputBox("Please enter the new password for the range") ' Change the password. wksOne.Protection.AllowEditRanges("Classified").ChangePassword _ Password:="strPassword" MsgBox "The password for these cells has been changed." End Sub
