Is there a way to protect a worksheet with a macro, but set some attribute so that the users would still be able to resize rows and columns?

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

If you're in v.2003 you can set that (maybe in 2002 as well).

Prior to that though and you'd need to give them a mechanism to unprotect/size/reprotect.

Why not use AutoFit in your code?

In Excel 2002 or later, try:

Code:
ActiveSheet.Protect "your password here", AllowFormattingColumns:=True, AllowFormattingRows:=True
