Hey Everybody!

I'm working with a sheet upon I have a private sub to provide a specific numberformat for a specific range:

VBA Code:
Range("AZ30:AZ36").NumberFormat = "###,###,##0 ""KG"""

Now the code works well situated in the private sub but when I protect the workbook with a password the code produces this message popup error:

Code:
Unable to set the NumberFormat property of the Range class

Can someone help me run this numberformat code with the workbook locked?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!

Thanks,
pinaceous

Do you mean the Sheet is locked, rather then the Book?
