Returns an object that represents the workbook that is open in the specified Protected View window. Read-only.
expression A variable that represents a ProtectedViewWindow object.
Because a Protected View window is designed to protect the user from potentially malicious code, the operations that you can perform by using a Workbook object returned by the Workbook method will be limited. Any operation that is not allowed will return an error.
A workbook displayed in a Protected View window is not a member of the Workbooks collection. Instead, use the Workbook property to access a workbook that is displayed in a Protected View window.
The following example uses the Workbook property to return the workbook that is open in the first Protected View window.
Dim wbProtected As Workbook If Application.ProtectedViewWindows.Count > 0 Then Set wbProtected = Application.ProtectedViewWindows(1).Workbook End If
