Excel: Password in PROTECT.DOCUMENT() Returns Macro Error
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, versions 2.2, 3.0, 4.0
PROTECT.DOCUMENT() is a Microsoft Excel macro command that allows you to protect a document or chart with or without a password.
To protect a document with a password, the password argument must be surrounded by double quotation marks (""). If there are no quotation marks around the password, Excel returns a macro error. This occurs because any text not surrounded by quotation marks that is passed as an argument to any Excel function is assumed to be a defined name.
