Excel/Unprotecting dynamic rows in a protected worksheet


Hi Richard,

Need your help in doing the below task using Formula/Macro.

I would like to unprotect the dynamic rows where it contains the word "Production Plan (Units) - Revised" in column B.

As per this example I would like to unprotect the cells C7:H7, C10:H10, C15:H15. I want to unprotect the whole row after the cell contains particular text (i.e. "Production Plan (Units) - Revised" in this case).

Please note that range will be dynamic. Please let me know if you have any question.!144&authkey=!AMmQq1D4vCEcXEo


Sorry to be late-I didn't see your question--I believe you will need a macro to accomplish what you want.  I am not an expert in macro development, so I suggest you reask the question of another allexperts person and I'm sure you can get a good answer.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
