  • Hi ,

    Welcome to this Microsoft Project forum:)

    I don't know about code, but try File/Save As.../click the Tools button at the bottom of the dialog/General Options/select what you want from in the next dialog eg Read Only recommended, or set a password.  Then save the project.  That should do it.

  • Mike referred to this option :

    File -> Save As -> Tools -> General Options

    There it gives you option to Password protect n make it Read Only.
