vba .protect Excel sheet

Hello,
Is it possible to use the tab key on a protected sheet that I protect via vba. The tab key can’t be used to tab on a protected sheet. Can someone guide? How can I make the tab key work on a protected sheet? is there anything i can add to the .protect clause to make the tab key work?
Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

All you need to do is the select the cells you want to be able to tab through and then right click on the cells, select "format cells...", select the "Protection" tab and uncheck "Locked".
