If you already have the outline/subtotals/autofilter applied, you can protect
the worksheet in code (auto_open/workbook_open??).

Option Explicit
Sub auto_open()
    With Worksheets("sheet1")
        .Protect Password:="hi", userinterfaceonly:=True
        .EnableOutlining = True
        '.EnableAutoFilter = True
    End With
End Sub

It needs to be reset each time you open the workbook.  (excel doesn't remember
it after closing the workbook.)

If you're new to macros, you may want to read David McRitchie's intro at:
