Dolores Umbridge's office at Hogwarts was not impervious to this spell like the article says it is. Harry uses the spell to open door so he can get into the office in the first place right before hes about to use the flu powder to get to the department of mysteries.

Harry uses the Alohomora spell in the film, but in the (more cannon) book, Harry thinks Prof. Umbridge casted counter spells on her office.--Rodolphus 16:49, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Something to Note...

The film it states that this is in the seventh chapter of The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 1. On Pottermore, it is the seventh spell in the book. Interesting, no? --Happy Christmas! (Season's Greetings) 02:38, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
