I have converted an application I wrote using Visual Baler to Lotus 123 Release 9. Under Baler, I was able to protect the application. The Macro code was in sheets that were hidden. When I lock the Lotus 123 model, many Macros do not run. Even if I unprotect a range, I am unable to run an Edit-Clear "Both" macro or an edit-paste-special "Values" macro. I can get around the edit-clear problem, but I need to be able to copy values and not formulas. When protection is on, I get a mesage stating that I cannot make changes to protected ranges even though I have unprotected them. Is this a Lotus problem or am I doing something wrong?
