AllowEditRanges Collection [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003
Multiple objects

A collection of all the AllowEditRanges objects that represent the cells that can be edited on a protected worksheet.

Using the AllowEditRanges Collection

Use the AllowEditRanges property of the Protection object to return an AllowEditRanges collection.

Once an AllowEditRanges collection has been returned, you can use the Add method to add a range that can be edited on a protected worksheet.

In this example, Microsoft Excel allows edits to range "A1:A4" on the active worksheet and notifies the user of the title and address of the specified range.

Sub UseAllowEditRanges()

    Dim wksOne As Worksheet
    Dim wksPassword As String

    Set wksOne = Application.ActiveSheet

    ' Unprotect worksheet.

    wksPassword = InputBox ("Enter password for the worksheet")
    ' Establish a range that can allow edits
    ' on the protected worksheet.
    wksOne.Protection.AllowEditRanges.Add _
        Title:="Classified", _
        Range:=Range("A1:A4"), _

    ' Notify the user
    ' the title and address of the range.
    With wksOne.Protection.AllowEditRanges.Item(1)
        MsgBox "Title of range: " & .Title
        MsgBox "Address of range: " & .Range.Address
    End With

End Sub
