Is there any way to protect a worksheet and still have data grouping functionality available?
There is no need to change the data groups themselves but I need to be able to expand and collapse the established data groups.

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

This might work:

Code:
ActiveSheet.EnableOutlining = True
ActiveSheet.Protect contents:=True, userInterfaceOnly:=True
