I protect worksheets to prevent accidental overwriting of formulas. Then when I need to make adjustments to the sheet, I turn protection off. However, unwanted protection keeps comming back after only one cell is changed. How can I turn off protection and make it stay off till I want it back again? I'm using Excel 2003. Claude

Hi, Claude,

you might have some code active
rightclick the sheettab
select "view code"
is there anything in the sheetmodule ?

(if problem occurs on several sheets check also workbookmodule)

kind regards,
Erik

Hello Eric, You bailed me out again. I had an On_Calculate routine in the ThisWorkbook object that was turning it on repeatedly. Thanks for your help. Claude

when things "happen by themselves" it must be code
(there are exceptions)
next time you will know :)
