Enable users to edit charts on a protected worksheet


R

roniaelm

Hi,

I have a worksheet where I need to protect from users editing the
content. However, I would like the user to format the excel charts
within the workheet, i.e. they can copy the charts, change the sizes
and also re-format.

I have used this VB code to protect my worksheets in the past. Is
there a way of amending this code to also enable the users to edit
charts?

Sheet1.Protect Password:="password", DrawingObjects:=True, _
contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, _
userinterfaceonly:=True
Sheet1.EnableAutoFilter = True
Sheet1.EnableOutlining = True

Thanks for your help!!

I didn't test this, but it won't take too long for you to try protecting the
worksheet with DrawingObjects:=false.
