Merge and Center when sheet is protected

Guest

I have a worksheet where I have certain columns and rows locked and the rest
is available for user input. I used Tools/Protection/and have a check in
front of Select unlocked cells and Format cells. It is password protected.
This works great except it will not allow you to use the merge and center
function on the toolbar. You can copy the same text into each cell below,
but it is much easier to read when you merge and center all of the selected
cells. Any idea why merge and center is not available when format cells is
checked?
Any/all help appreciated!!

Hi Tory,

Try the horizontal alignment of Center Across Selection. It's much less
invasive than merging and doesn't cause near the headaches.

The cells I am trying to merge or combine are in a column - vertical. The
idea is to select all the cells in the range of time you will have the car
signed out - instead of seeing

Tory every half hour, you would see a box indicating the car is signed out
for 2 hours by Tory.
