Protects the workbook structure using the supplied password. End users will not be able to add or remove worksheets unless they enter the password.

 public void Protect(System.String password)
Public Sub Protect(ByVal password As String)

The password to use to protect the workbook. If the password = "" or null, then the workbook will be protected without a password.

The equivalent to this action in Excel is to select "Protect structure and windows" from the review menu.

Further protection can be extended to cells by using the Worksheet.Protect() method to protect individual worksheets and by using the Workbook.EncryptPassword property to set a password that must be provided to open the workbook.
