Hi,

Could someone tell me if there is a one-line piece of vb code that when used once, will protect a worksheet, and when activated again, will unprotect a worksheet...

A similar one I used for displaying workbook tabs is below:

ActiveWindow.DisplayWorkbookTabs = Not (ActiveWindow.DisplayWorkbookTabs)

I just can't seem to get one working for sheet protection. Hope someon can help.

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

You could use something like

Code:
If ActiveSheet.ProtectContents Then
    ActiveSheet.Unprotect
Else
    ActiveSheet.Protect
End If
