    Time limit access to workbook (Excel 2003)

    Subject edited by HansV to be less generic than "Help with Excel" (this is the Excel forum, after all)

    I have a spreadsheet which I need to give access to others. I want this workbook to be used for a specific period, say 6-12 months only. Then I don't want anyone to be able to open or edit this workbook. Is this possible using visual basic, if so, does anyone know where I can get some information on how to do this.

    See the threads starting at <post:=511,048>post 511,048</post:>, <post:=499,737>post 499,737</post:> and <post:=88,954>post 88,954</post:>.

    Please keep in mind that users can a) disable macros, [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] change the system date on their PC, c) try to break into the code, even if you protect it with a password.
