Is it necessary to unprotect a worksheet containing a chart in order to have VBA code rescale the chart? I am trying to force a scale change using VBA code and I find that it only works if the chart is unprotected.


Is there a workaround without needing to unprotect and protect the sheet after every calculation

Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

Set the DrawingObjects argument to False e.g.
Code:
ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=False

This will allow you to edit the chart while the sheet is protected.

With this code entered, I now get prompted for a worksheet password for the chart worksheet/ This defeats the purpose of what I am looking to do.

Anyone have another suggestion?
