    Spell Check cells in Protected Worksheet?

    Is it possible to run the spelling checker on a worksheet when the worksheet
    is protected?
    It doesn't appear that it is possible through Excel's "normal" options.
    A customer has created a protected Excel form with certain cells unlocked
    for data. If the person misspells data in these cells, the spelling checker
    is not available.
    Any way around this?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated!
    Thanks.

    You can use this macro to unprotect, run the spellcheck, then re-protect the
    sheet.


    Sub Spell_Check()
    ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="justme"
    Cells.CheckSpelling SpellLang:=1033
    ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="justme", DrawingObjects:=True, _
    Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
    End Sub
