TeeOpen_ProtectTee + TeeOpen_UnprotectTee

Protect or unprotect a workbook (already open) remotely from another workbook
This was imported from TeeMan system built back in 2017.
Expected to have settings named "TallyFile" and "TallyPass"
"TallyFile" is only needed if the call passed blank
"TallyPass" is the password to protect workbook and worksheets
It also hides the workbook window (needed in Excel 2013 and later)

Sub TeeOpen_ProtectTee(Wb)
 ' Protect a Tee file
 ' Imported from TeeMan
 ' WB is workbook filename that is already open
 WShe_spc = "TeeTallysheet" ' The special treatment sheet (very hidden)
 If Wb = "" Then WB = SettingRead("TallyFile")
 Pwd = SettingRead("TallyPass")
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False
 If Workbooks(WB).ProtectStructure Then Workbooks(WB).Unprotect Pwd
 If Not FindSheet(WShe_spc, Workbooks(WB)) Then
  Workbooks(WB).Worksheets.Add Workbooks(WB).Worksheets(1)
  Workbooks(WB).Worksheets(1).Name = WShe_spc
 End If
 For Each WSh In Workbooks(WB).Worksheets
  If WSh.Name <> WShe_spc And WSh.Visible <> xlSheetVeryHidden Then WSh.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden
 Workbooks(WB).Windows(1).Visible = False
 Workbooks(WB).Protect Pwd, True
 Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
Sub TeeOpen_UnprotectTee(Wb)
 ' Unprotect a Tee file that was protected by TeeOpen_ProtectTee sub above
 If WB = "" Then WB = SettingRead("TallyFile")
 Pwd = SettingRead("TallyPass")
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False
 Workbooks(WB).Unprotect Pwd
 Workbooks(WB).Windows(1).Visible = True
 For Each WSh In Workbooks(WB).Worksheets
  WSh.Visible = xlSheetVisible
 Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

If passed as "" it will need to read from Settings sheet
