Hi, after searching the web and testing VBA codes, I've become stuck...

I have a Cell Range - E8:J27:
  • where all cells have a fill color of RED,
  • and can change to either WHITE or BLACK
    • which is determined by conditional formatting.
  • For the desired outcome I am not sure if the cell range should be set to locked, unlocked, or
    • ​if the workbook being protected when opened will determine this.

Workbook Details:
  • VBA protected when closed.
    • As a result, protected when opened.
    • Protected with a password.

Outcome Desired:
  • RED = UNLOCKED
  • WHITE = UNLOCKED
  • BLACK = LOCKED
    • BLACK cells can only be edited when workbook/worksheet is unprotected.
  • Looped through all worksheets which all have the exact same layout, fill colors, conditional formatting, etc.

Hopefully, I have explained this so someone can understand. If anyone could help me out with a code, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
