To protect user's privacy

    I have a number of users that have to work on the same excel workbook.
    Each user should have access to its own worksheet and be denied to *see* other users data.
    I managed to selectively show and hide worksheets by a form asking for usn+pw in the ThisWorkbook.Workbook_Open() event.
    Now I want to deny a smart user to access other user's data by VBA commands in the immediate window, so I need to deny access to VB Editor.

    How can I temporary disable VB Editor?

    Thanks in advance,

    To disable access to the VBE requires disabling several keys and menus.
    It might be wiser to use Environ("username") as a safety mechanism so
    only the logged in user can access their worksheet. Require a password
    to make sheets visible, where the password must match the username.
