    Compile 3 Macros into 1 (Unprotect > Run Loop > Protect)

    I have a macro that runs a loop on most sheets to clear colored cells. All worksheets are protected and I can't seem to integrate my protect and unprotect macros (which work!) into the clearing macro. Here are all 3:


    Clear cells

    Unprotect all sheets

    Protect all sheets

    How can I integrate the 1. unprotect all sheets, 2. run clear macro, and 3. protect all sheets?

    Note that "UserInterfaceOnly:=True" does not consistently work. It fails when the workbook is opened having been previously protected..

    Have you tried calling the subs from the sub that's clearing cells?

    PS I changed the sub name to avoid conflict with the VBA method ClearContents.

    Thanks, that's simple! However, it seems to operate a bit clunky .. I'm not sure that the macros are working in the correct order. It asks to unprotect, then protect, then it seems as if it clears..?

    There's a small error in the code I posted, remove this line.

    As for the code unprotecting, protecting and then clearing, I can't see that happening.

    The order of the code is call UnprotectAllSheets, clear, and then call ProtectAllSheets.

    Norie,

    I adjusted your code but still, the process goes as follows:

    1. asks me to unprotect

    2. asks me to protect

    3. clears all blue cells

    How exactly did you adjust the code?

    You'll notice that I added " Range("C3").Value = DateAdd("d", 7, Range("C3").Value)" but that doesn't seem to be the issue. I don't think.

    I also notice you added this, but I'm not sure why.

    Can you upload a sample workbook?

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    I added that to save just prior to running the protection and clearing so that in case it was done in error we could exit without saving and reopen.
