Default Disabled Toolbar Options


I have created a workbook that restricts specified users from accessing options. This has worked fine for a number of months. However, this week one user (with permissions) has unprotected the workbook/worksheet, made changes to and saved it. When the workbook was re-opened, they found that some features were now unavailable to them. These include the 'Protect' and 'Macro' options from 'Tools'.

I did wonder whether two or more persons were (attempting to) edit the same workbook at the same time, any ideas what else could cause this to happen?

Thanks in advance,


A Northern Soul

I would imagine that some code has switched off these functions. You would need to post your code from the workbook, especially anything that mentions Menu or Commandbars.

Hope that helps
