Further Adventures in Excel 20003 Protecting Workbooks There may be times when you will want to protect a cell, a range of cells, a worksheet or an entire workbook from unauthorized editing. This is done by using Excel’s Protection tool. With this feature you can even add password protection so that users you select can edit the data, but the rest of the world can not. For that matter you can even Password Protect the entire Excel workbook file so that it can not be opened or modified by unauthorized users.
Further Adventures in Excel 20004 To set up cell protection you must first select the cells or range of cells you want to protect…then you open the Format Cells dialog from either the shortcut menu or the Format menu…check the Locked checkbox to “lock” or protect the cells…
Further Adventures in Excel 20005 …next you need to apply Protection to the entire sheet or workbook. This will activate the cell “locking” that you selected…if you don’t perform this step the cell locking does not have any affect. To protect the worksheet or workbook select the Protection command from the Tools menu…
Further Adventures in Excel 20006 …for this example Protect Sheet was selected…this displays the Protect Sheet dialog box. The default values are fine, and you could add a password, but remember the password …without it even you will be locked out!
Further Adventures in Excel 20007 …to test the protection, try to edit a protected (or locked) cell…you will receive an error message like the one above if the cell is Locked.
Further Adventures in Excel 20008 To protect an entire workbook file, select the Save As command from the file menu, and then the Tools option and the General Options command…
Further Adventures in Excel 20009 …in the Save Options dialog you can add a password to Open the file AND to Modify it, or both. Remember the passwords, without them you, too, will be excluded from the file! Before applying any Protection to a file always make a backup copy and store it in a safe place …just in case you forget your password…
