I have several macro buttons on a worksheet that is protected from editing. But the protection disables the macros.

Is there a way around this?

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

You can unprotect/reprotect in your code:

Code:
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "PasswordGoesHere"
  '  Your code
ActiveSheet.Protect "PasswordGoesHere"
