    I am using Microsoft Office Suite 2016.
    I have a worksheet that I have protected. The things that I have allowed for anyone who gets access to this sheet are:
    1. Select locked cells
    2. Select unlocked cells
    3. Insert rows
    4. Delete rows

    Now, my problem is that when I select the option to insert rows, it is working.
    But, when I am trying to delete rows, a dialog box appears, asking me to unprotect the worksheet. May I know if I am doing something wrong or have I missed something? Please tell me the solution to this.

    The moment you protect the sheet you have to indicate the exact things that are allowed.
    If you select only one row, does the same thing happen?
    Is the entire row unlocked?
