Question on VB working when cells are 'protected' - using Worksheet_Change (ByVal Target as Range)

The project I inherited... when the spreadsheet is in the protected mode, allows general users to input data into unprotected cells and the macro (a sub 'worksheet_change...') calculates fine. When put into 'unprotected mode' (which allows for faster input for some reason) the macro does not calculate properly till a value in a supposed 'protected cell' is changed.

The question is, if the main spreadsheet contains cells that are protected from over-writing, and protection is OFF and the sub (worksheet_change...) references those cells, does the sub only automatically calculate when protection is on, or is this just some VB coding problem.

Hopefully you understand my question...
