Protecting Worksheets from Deletion in Excel

There are a few ways to protect worksheets from deletion in Excel. One way is to password protect the workbook. To do this, go to File > Info > Protect Workbook > Encrypt with Password. Enter a password and click "OK". Now, whenever someone tries to delete a worksheet, they will be prompted for the password.

Another way to protect worksheets from deletion is to use sheet protection. To do this, go to Review > Protect Sheet. Enter a password (optional) and click "OK". Now, all of the cells in the worksheet are locked and cannot be deleted. To delete a locked cell, first unlock it by going to Review > Unprotect Sheet and entering the password.

You can also prevent users from adding or deleting worksheets by modifying the workbook's properties. To do this, go to File > Properties > Security. Under "Security Level", select "Restrict Editing". Now, only people with the password will be able to add or delete worksheets.
