    I posted on this back in January 2016 (my post is now folded into the comments on this one). Today, with hope in my heart I tried inserting a row in a table on a protected sheet and see that it's still not possible. Are there any plans to make this happen?

    I'm fairly late to this site, so let me know if this specific request was already made. I searched and found more general things but not this.

    I'd like to be able to lock some cells in a structured table, protect the sheet and still be able to insert rows with the Insert command, add rows by tabbing past the end of the table, and delete rows. This would be very useful in making more foolproof user interfaces.

    As it is now, it's risky to use a table for user data entry because if you want them to be able to add rows you have to leave formulas unprotected. (Or use VBA).

    Great suggestion E Bow. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about changes you’d like to see – we’re listening. We’ll take a look at this one. As always, folks should keep voting for the things they like the most – we’ll generally be prioritizing things according to the number of votes they get.

    Good suggestion Frederic – thanks for taking the time to post it. We’ll take a look at the F4 loop and including other functionality like this as soon as we can. We’ll be spending more time on the things with more votes – so folks that really want to see this should keep voting it up.

    Best,
    John [MS XL]

    This was the first thing I thought of and was going to submit it it wasn't already. Good explanation Frederic.
