Hi

I noticed in vba within the sheets properties is a function which prevents any cells being selected if the sheet is locked, how can I enable this with a vba command?

The setting in the Properties for the worksheet doesn't accomplish anything until the worksheet is protected, as you have discovered.

In VBA, you would want to protect the worksheet first, then make the setting to prevent cell selection.
Sub NoSelection()
With Worksheets("Sheet1")
    .Protect
    .EnableSelection = xlNoSelection
End With
End Sub

Open in new window
