How to add Parameters in Worksheet Protection? Office Scripts

Occasional Contributor

How can I allow formatting of columns? I tried to insert the WorksheetProtectionOptions but I keep failing.





function main(workbook: ExcelScript.Workbook) {
    let sheet = workbook.getWorksheet("By Item");





Here is the link.

I'm not familiar with Excel Online, but here is a little bit of information that might help you in your plans. If not please just ignore it.


You cannot create a sheet protection in the WebApp and you cannot remove any existing sheet protection. However, you can now upload folders with protected sheets and since this update they can also be opened. Editing is possible as far as the set protection allows. I have learned that so far, but if it is different, I am very happy to be taught.

var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getSheetByName("TRAVAUX");
var debug = sheet.getName();
var protections = sheet.getProtections(SpreadsheetApp.ProtectionType.RANGE);
