    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum.

    To make a column non-editable:

    1. Select the whole worksheet, Right Click->Format Cells->Protection, uncheck the "Locked" check box.

    2. Select the column you want to protect, right Click->Format Cells->Protection, select the "Locked" check box.

    3. Review tab->Protect Sheet, select the "Protect worksheet and contents of locked cells" check box and protect the sheet using a password.
