MS Excel:Protecting Cells
When a cell contains words or a formula that you don't want deleted by accident, use the protection feature. To protect cells, select the cells to protect. Right click, and choose Format Cells. Click the Protection tab and click Locked. Tools/Protection and choose Protect Worksheet. Now, if you try to change anything about that cell (formatting or the contents), you will get a message that the cell is protected. If you do need to change the cell, go to Tools/Protection and choose Unprotect Worksheet. After changes, remember to protect the worksheet again!
