Using Excel 2016.

Searchable DD list works fine until I protect the sheet, once I protect the sheet it doesnt.

Thanks,

Hi there,

For the current version of Kutools for Excel, the Searchable Drop-Down List feature will not be available after protecting the sheet.

But the good news is that we will make the Searchable DD list available in the next version as long as the cells where you apply the feature are unlocked. :D

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.

Amanda, Thank you for your reply,

I'm not sure why this would be an issue...it seems to me that one should be able to protect the sheet and still have the searchable DD list working.
Never-the-less, Both the cells with the DD list and the cells where the list references too are all unprotected/unlocked. So, as you wrote "...the Searchable DD list available as long as the cells where you apply the feature are unlocked", am I misreading this or missing something?

Thanks,

Sorry, there was a typo. I was saying the good news is that we will make the Searchable DD list available in the next version as long as the cells where you apply the feature are unlocked.

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks again for the reply and clarification. Do you have an approximation as to when the updated version will be released?

The new version should be launched in two or three months. Note that this is an estimated time :)

Hi Amanda,

I believe I downloaded the most recent version of the Kutools software, but I still experience the problem that the searchable dropdown menu doesn't work on protected sheets. Is the function not yet released? Or am I doing something wrong?

Please let me know!

Kind regards,
FrisoE

Hi there,

The new version (Kutools for Excel 27.0) with the function is releasing soon. Please subscribe our website so that you don't miss the release note.

Note that after you download and install Kutools for Excel 27.0, before you use the searchable dropdown menu on protected sheets, you should: 1. select the range where you applied the searchable dropdown menu; 2. click Kutools Plus > Design View > Unlock Cells; 3. protect the worksheet.
