AllowInsertingColumns Property

Protection.AllowInsertingColumns Property 

Returns True if the insertion of columns is allowed on a protected worksheet.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel (in microsoft.office.interop.excel.dll)

Dim protection1 As Protection

Dim returnValue As Boolean
returnValue = protection1.AllowInsertingColumns

bool AllowInsertingColumns {get;}
public boolean get_AllowInsertingColumns();
function get AllowInsertingColumns() : Boolean;

An inserted column inherits its formatting (by default) from the column to its left, which means that it may have locked cells. In other words, users may not be able to delete columns that they have inserted.

The AllowInsertingColumns property can be set by using the Protect method arguments.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
