I have this code.

Code:
Sub Worksheet_change(ByVal Target As Range)

    ActiveSheet.Unprotect
    
    
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 17 To 43 Step 2
        Sheet6.Rows(i).EntireRow.Hidden = Sheet5.Range("M" & i).Value = "Yes" 'Unmet needs
        Sheet6.Rows(i + 1).EntireRow.Hidden = Sheet5.Range("M" & i).Value = "Yes" 'Unmet need
        Sheet10.Rows(i + 17).EntireRow.Hidden = Sheet5.Range("M" & i).Value = "Yes" 'checklist
        Sheet10.Rows(i + 18).EntireRow.Hidden = Sheet5.Range("M" & i).Value = "Yes"   'Checklist
        Sheet6.Range("L" & i).ClearContents
        Sheet6.Range("N" & i).ClearContents
    Next i

ActiveSheet.protect

End Sub

However, if I protect sheet 6 (or indeed sheet 10) then the code crashes with error code 'Runtime error 1004 - Unable to set the Hidden property of the range class.

I need to unprotect sheet 6 & 10 and then protect them again when the loop has finished.
