Overview of "VBA Scrambler"

The security offered through Microsoft Excel is weak and VB project passwords can easily be broken using password breaking utilities available online. VBA Scrambler does not attempt to improve or replace that security.....rather it helps you make your VBA code unreadable to the human eye and as a result worthless to anyone trying to copy and replicate your hard work.

While the VBA Scrambler will not stop a malicious attempt to steal your VB code.....it will discourage the copy and re-use of your code as the scrambled version of your Excel VBA Project will take hours of review to understand your logic and then re-use it. Without VBA Scrambler the Excel VBA Project can be opened and reviewed for understanding in minutes following your existing comments and logic. 
  1. The scrambling process will remove all comments, blank lines, additional spaces and change all procedure names to meaningless names.
  2. A new workbook is created for each scramble this ensures the development version is not impacted.
  3. Statistics are reported on the number of comments, blanks lines and procedure name changes that have occurred
  4. The amount of scrambling can be changed as required. In some cases you can elect only to remove comments and blank lines, leaving the procedure names unchanged

For VBA scrambler to access the codes modules we must also "Trust access to the VBA project object model". To set this you must access the setting through Excel Options -> Trust Centre -> Trust Centre Settings -> Macro Settings
