Hi,

I am trying to protect the sheet while also trying to have few cells editable for the user to enter data.

Rng = 1
DestSht = "Summary"

The below piece of code appears in a loop. The cells that are editable by the user depends on the cell index numbers.

Range(Selection, ActiveCell.Offset(0, Col - 2 - cc - 1)).Select
MyAddress = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address(False, False)
RngNm = "Range" & Rng
Sheets(DestSht).Protect("pass-1")
set c = Application.Sheets(DestSht).Protection.AllowEditRanges.Add(RngNm, Range(MyAddress), "pass-1")

But the above line returns a "Application-defined or Object-defined error"

Can anyojne pls help?

Thanks
Anusha

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Surely you have to set the alloweditranges before you protect the sheet?
