Hello Forum!!

 

I am in an urgent need of help!!

 

I wrote a rather elaborate Macro code and protected it as well. I sent the protected workbook to my friend, and he was able to see all of my code and even edit it without even having to know the password. He simply opened the workbook in LibreOffice / Ubuntu!!!!

 

Is there a way to protect my macro-codes more securely?

 

thanks for your responses.
