VBA Code to unprotect worksheet keeps prompting unwanted MS Office "worksheet protected" pop up box RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm not sure if I'm even in the right place to ask this question, but I have the below simple VBA code to unprotect my Excel worksheet when the user clicks a radio button, refilter the list, jump to a certain range, then protect the worksheet.

    The problem is this annoying MS Office message box keeps popping up that states the worksheet is protected.  When the user clicks OK on the pop up box the macro runs as it should, but I don't want the pop up box to appear at all.  How can I stop it?

        ActiveSheet.Range("$A$14:$C$414").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:="2"
        ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
