How to obfuscate VBA code?


B

BOB

I am looking for a tool to obfuscate
VBA (Word) code.
Applications should run but their
code should be difficult to read.

Any suggestions would be very
much appreciated.

You can password-protect the module in your template, if that helps.
Unfortunately it does not help. It s too weak.

Obfuscating is even weaker than password-protecting. For better results,
you'd need to compile your code into a DLL, but even that could be
disassembled and studied.

I am not sure which one is weaker. It probably depends on the password
or how much "sophisticated" is the the obfuscating. :)
I realise that there is not fully certain method but I think that compiling
into a DLL could be enough. The problem is that I know nothing about
compiling into a DLL. Do you have any address with detailed descriptiom
on how to do it? I would be very grateful if you could give me such address.

I have *at least* 2 programs here that will break Excel passwords instantly.
