Hello,

I would like to protect 3 columns using VBA. Protection should go as long as there is data.

I measure the end of my data in column A and to find the last row I use:

Code:
LastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
Now, to protect 3 columns I used this code, but it doesn't work.
Code:
ws.Unprotect Password:="123"
ws.Cells.Locked = False
ws.Range("C" & LastRow).Locked = True
ws.Range("D" & LastRow).Locked = True
ws.Range("E" & LastRow).Locked = True
ws.Protect Password:="123", UserInterFaceOnly:=True
I appreciate any help on this.

Thanks for the response pgc01, yes, I would like to lock all the cells above. Actually, I found a solution by locking the whole column,

Code:
Columns("C").Locked = True
I would really like to lock only where data ends. What would be solution to that?

Thanks again for your response.

Try:

Code:
Sub lockSomeCells()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim LastRow As Long

Set ws = Worksheets("Sheet1")
LastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

ws.Unprotect Password:="123"
ws.Cells.Locked = False
ws.Range("C1:E" & LastRow).Locked = True
ws.Protect Password:="123", UserInterFaceOnly:=True

End Sub
