    Protection of spreadsheets

    I am enclosing an excel file in which I have a table.

    I know how to protect the entire sheet, but after that, I want to un protect certain columns or cells.

    How do I do that?

    For example, in the attached file I want to un protect column D and column F.

    How do I do it?

    Thank you
    Raphael

    hi Raphael.

    1. select only those you dont want to lock (column D & F). press CTRL + 1 to go to Format Cells. go to the tab "Protection". Uncheck the "Locked". press OK.*

    2. Now, right-click the Sheet & Protect Sheet. only those you did not select in Step 1 will be locked

    I did what you told me and it works.

    How, now do I put a password so the user will not be able to un protect what I did?

    in the same window you right-click & Protect sheet, you should see an input for you to key in "Password to unprotect sheet"
