    Auto-expand text rows in protected worksheet - can I do it?

    Hi everyone

    I've come up against what I think is a problem in a protected worksheet.

    There are two columns in the sheet where end users can add free-flow text into the cells below, but with the sheet(s) being protected, they might overflow the visible space in these cells as the row height won't auto-expand.

    Is there anything that will help solve this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Try this when you Protect the sheet to see if it does what you want it to. I have WordWrap turned on in the two unprotected cells in the middle
