Looking for advice.

What is the most efficient way to code a list of cells that are to remain
unprotected when the worksheet is later protected? The cells in question
have no distinguishing features. Each worksheet in the workbook will have a
different list of cells. The solution should allow for multiple workbooks
which can be forced to all reside in a single folder. The worksheet names
will be identical or the matching sheets will always be in the same order
within each workbook.

I'm looking for a solution that will be easy to maintain even if it means
storing the 'list of cells' in another workbook rather than in the code
itself. Working environment is Excel 2007, Windows XP.

Related question - can cells in a protected worksheet be unprotected without
first unprotecting the worksheet?
