    Can a macro work in a protected [Excel 2010] sheet?

    I am a records manager and I've created an Excel 2010 form for my users to complete when they are sending boxes of business records (paper) to offsite storage. I've created a macro via a commandbutton on the form that they can click to insert a new row each time they want to add a box (one row on the form equals one box of records, so 10 rows = 10 boxes). While the macro works really well when the sheet is not protected, it does not work when the sheet is protected.

    How can I get around this... is there something I'm missing?

    Here's my VBA code:

    Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

    Sheets("RTL Form").Range("a13").Select
    ActiveCell.EntireRow.Insert Shift:=xlDown

    Sheets("RTL Form").Range("b13:G13").Select
    Selection.Borders.Weight = xlThin

    End Sub
