EE Pros,

I have a WS that has unprotected cells.  When I protect it.... the cursor moves in a pattern that is not what should be followed.  How do I get the next logical cell to be where the cursor moves to when I tab or arrow to the next unprotected cell?

Thank you in advance,

B.

When you protect the sheet and choose to allow users to select only unlocked cells, the active cell should move as follows:
Right then down in you press TAB
or
Down  then right if you press RETURN

What behaviour are you getting?
