    Is there a way to display "last saved by" by worksheet not workbook?

    I am currently using function:

    Function LstSvBy() As Variant
    Application.Volatile
    LstSvBy = ActiveWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties(7)
    End Function

    then =lstsvby() in a cell in each worksheet.

    However, I have multiple worksheets and would like to show who modified each individual worksheet separately not the overall workbook. (Each worksheet is password protected) Not sure if this is possible or if I would need to save each worksheet as its own workbook.


    Thank you.

    Hi, welcome to the forum,
    If the worksheets are password protected the user that makes changes to this worksheet will know the password so you could add an On Change event and place the current username in a cell or other worksheet with a timestamp.
    If you place this in a separate worksheet e.g. Log_Sheet and make this sheet (very)hidden you can keep a log by placing the worksheet name, timestamp and username in it.
    You will always know which was the last user to make changes to it.
