Program/Macro to Highlight Editable Ranges in Protected Sheet

How to identify Editable ranges in a protected Excel sheet using VBA

My good friend Srikanth Srinivasan is a Project Manager whom Microsoft will definitely want to hire as evangelist. He uses the functionality of Excel to great extent and made it ubiquitous.

The following code was for him, which highlights the ranges that are not protected in Excel sheet

Sub HighLight_Editable_Ranges()

Dim oWS As Worksheet
Dim oRng As AllowEditRange

Set oWS = ActiveSheet


For Each oRng In oWS.Protection.AllowEditRanges
oRng.Range.Interior.ColorIndex = 35
Next oRng


End Sub
