    Lock cell on conditional data

    I want to be able to lock cells in one column based on the content of cells in another column. Example, Lock C10 if A10 ="X".

    Conditional formatting doesn't include locking cells, and I can't see how to do this with an IF statement. I'm not a programmer so I'd prefer not to have to deal with VB code.

    Hi
    To do what you want you would have to use VBA code to achieve.

    Re: Lock cell on conditional data

    Whether this should happen for C10 alone or for every rows based on the Column-A row data?

    Re: Lock cell on conditional data

    What I am actually looking for is if the cell in column U (starting at U14) = "I" then lock the equivalent cell in column AR.

    I will be happy to accept VB code but I can't write it myself.

    Thank you.
