Re: how to Protect worksheet after running VBA code for converting column to text

Maybe this

Code:
Sub EWEB2()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("EWEB")
With ws
.Unprotect Password:="dim"
.Columns("G:G").TextToColumns Destination:=Range("G1"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, _
Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, Space:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo _
:=Array(1, 1), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
.Protect Password:="dim", DrawingObjects:=True, contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, AllowFiltering:=True, AllowFormattingCells:=True, AllowFormattingColumns:=True, _
AllowFormattingRows:=True, UserInterFaceOnly:=True
End With
End Sub
