How To Protect Formula Cells But Allow Access To Data Cells

Dec 22, 2011

I try this method but data entry not allowed

Here is a scenario to protect

formula cells but allow access to data cells:

. Select all cells in the worksheet by clicking on the top left corner of the sheet.

. On the Format menu Click Cells.

. Click on the Protection tab.

. Uncheck the Locked and

Hidden check boxes, then click OK.

These four steps will make all cells in the worksheet unprotected and can therefor be modified. Next step is to
protect the formula cells, and here is how we do it:

. Select all cells that have formulas.

. On the Format menu Click Cells.

. Click on the Protection tab.

. Check the Locked and Hidden check boxes, then click OK.

. On the Tools menu click

Protection and select Protect sheet

Ifve been instructing people to Paste Special  Values, but of course itfs more difficult. For example, Ifd like to protect a sheet but allow cells B2:C2 to be editable in value only – NOT in format. I tried searching the forum for a solution but was unable to find anything.

Protect Individual Cells?

Mar 17, 2007

I am running a loop that changes the value in one cell at a time. Since this is for our entire company, I am trying to make it "idiot-proof" like most of you have done.
While in the loop, I want to unprotect a cell, change the value, then reprotect the cell. But the rest of the worksheet is going to be unprotected for now. is that possible? Or do I have to protect the whole sheet, and then .Unprotect the whole sheet first and then. Protect it at the end of the macro.

Lock/Protect Select Cells Only

Apr 17, 2008

In the attached example, I have two fields. In the first (top), I have fields I want the user to be able to enter data (revenue/weight/skids). The information at the bottom is generated by formulas that act on the user-provided data and display the results at the bottom. The key, though, is keeping Excel-ignorant users from inadvertantly destroying the formulas and data in the middle section. I still need to display the results at each step, though, so hiding those middle fields is not an option. How can I lock only some cells within a single spreadsheet like this?
