Excel: Enable Grouping and Outline/Outlining on a Protected Excel Worksheet

Enable Grouping & Outline/Outlining on a Protected Worksheet. See Also: Excel Auto Outline and Excel Manual Outline

In Excel 2000 Microsoft added many new levels of Worksheet protection to Excel. Unfortunately they have neglected to add one that would allow Excel users to use Grouping/Outlining on a protected Worksheet.

The code below can be used to allow the use of Grouping/Outlining on a protect Worksheet. It makes use of Excels UserInterfaceOnly Argument of the Protection Method which it normally used to keep the general Excel interface protected, but allow changes from Excel macros. The closing of the Workbook however will set the UserInterfaceOnly back to False. This is why we need to use the Workbook Open event to set it to True.

To use the macro code below, right click on the Excel icon, top left next to "File" and choose "View Code" in here paste the code below. Then save the Workbook, close it, and reopen it, ensuring you enable macros. I have used the Worksheet CodeName to reference the correct Worksheet, but you can use the tab name, or sheet index number. The use of the Worksheets CodeName is the best way.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

    With Sheet1

       .Protect Password:="Secret", UserInterfaceOnly:=True

       .EnableOutlining = True

    End With

End Sub
