Sort Ascending / Descending don't seem to work when Protection is turned on,
even if the AutoFilter and Sort check box is checked when enabling Protection.

1. Tools -> Protection -> Protect Sheet -> check Use AutoFilter (and Sort if
you wish).
2. Data -> Filter -> AutoFilter.
3. Click any column heading -> Sort Ascending or Descending - no change in
data.

The cells to be sorted must be unlocked even with this protection option.
