Starting with Version 7 of G Merge Plus, the add-on can:
- Ignore protected rows and display Not processed in reports (Not Processed : You are trying to edit a protected cell or object.) in the pop-up report.
- Ignore "check header" function when a header column is protected and users don't have edit access.
- Display the error message when the add-on is running over a protected range. This will not stop the add-on from moving down to rows that should be processed.
