View Full Version : [SOLVED:] Want 2 Protect sheet - but Checkboxes are too :(

Hi again.
the first part of my task is marked Solved at http://www.vbaexpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=632
so I thought I should start a new one to continue.

I want to protect the Text in the cells, and the Totals from being modified, so I have locked them in the Cell properties.
if I protect my sheet, the Checkboxes are also protected & can't be changed.
In the Checkbox properties I have unchecked both Lock Text and Lock (and a combo)
In the Security properties for the sheet I have tried checking and unchecking all of them (Contencts, Objects, Scenerios) but everything locks the checkboxes.

:dunno Is there a way around this?

Thank you once again

Make sure that the cells that are used as the Cell Links for the Check Boxs are all unlocked.
