How can I unlock a lot for editing?

I want to edit "The Great Pyrimid" but it tells me "you must use a cheat to lock/unlock this lot for editing.

What cheat do I need?

Thanks, I new about "Testingcheatsenabled true" but I didn't know about "buydebug".
"buydebug" gives you more objects to build with, but doesn't unlock the maxis lots. I want to edit the prebuilt lots, but is still tells me I "need a cheat"

Can someone explain step by step.
When I start the I select my active family.
Then I send them on vacation.
Once their on vacation I click edit town.
I open the cheat menu and put in the cheat "testingcheatsenabled true".
I shift click on the Pyrimid I wand to edit.
I get the message "you must use a cheat to lock/unlock this lot for editing"

I don't get it, what am I doing wrong.
