How to Use a Protected Worksheet in Excel

In order to use a protected worksheet in Excel, you must first ensure that the worksheet is properly formatted and that all of the cells are locked. To do this, select the cells that you want to lock and then click on the 'Format' tab. In the 'Protection' section, click on the 'Locked' check box and then click 'OK'.

Once the cells are locked, you can then protect the worksheet by clicking on the 'Review' tab and then selecting 'Protect Sheet'. In the 'Protect Sheet' dialogue box, you can specify which cells can be edited and what type of information can be entered into those cells. You can also specify a password for the sheet if you wish.
