Alert messages

Is there a better way to notify a user that a worksheet is unprotected other
than reviewing the toolbar.

For relatively inexperienced users, it is oftentimes necessary for them to
unprotect a worksheet, clear some rows which contain various locked columns
and then re-protect the sheet. An alert message (flashing in the worksheet)
would prevent them from forgetting to re-protect.

Even better would be to not have to unprotect the sheet. Clearing a row
containing both locked and unlocked cells should allow the unlocked cells to
clear without having to unprotect the sheet.

You can use the WorkbooksBeforeClose event to ensure the sheet is protected
and saved, without worrying about the user.
