Hey,

we are currently working on a excel form where is many levels.
I need to set protection to this sheet, but in the same time allow the users to use outlining and grouping of the levels (+ a - signs on the left). I can not find such a option in the protection window...

Thanks in advance for your help!

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

I believe you can only do that via some continuous loop running in the background or via subclassing both of which can have a impact on performance plus the user will have to have the macros enabled .

If you are still interested I can post some code sample for you.

Regards.
