Episode 593 – Unprotect Green Cells

September 14, 2007 at 9:00 am Leave a comment

Today, the questioner asks how to unprotect the green cells. There isn’t any good way to do this in the Excel user interface, so in Episode 593, I use a tiny bit of VBA code to achieve the effect.

The code used in the podcast is:

Sub UnProtectGreenFor each Cell in Selection If Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 4 then Cell.Locked = False Else Cell.Locked = True End IfNext CellEnd Sub
