    VBA to permit macros on protected sheet!

    Hi all,

    If it is not too much to ask I was wondering whether someone can help me with the below code.

    Basically I have a workbook which contains numerous macros which I have assigned to different command buttons.

    I would like to protect the workbook so as to ensure data input in some cells but not in others. At the same time I would like to ensure that all macros will still be functional when I hit the command buttons.

    I was trying to use the below code, however, I am still getting some errors.

    If it is possible, is there a better code which could be used and which will permit all macros to be executed?

    (P.S: also tried to insert code in existing macros to unprotect and re-protect but to no avail).

    Appreciate a lot your kind help!

    Thanks

    Keibri

    You could instead have each macro unprotect the sheet(s) it needs to change at the beginning, and then re-protect when it's done.

    Hi Keibri

    This (almost) always works for me...if you have other actions you wish to allow you'll need to add to the Code.
