I have a spreadsheet in which i only want to allow the user to do certain things. I hope you can answer these few questions:

1) How do I stop the user from manipulating certain cells and only
2) How do i lock the formatting of the entire spreadsheet - to include cell formatting
3) How can i stop the user from trying to delete or rename a sheet ( in the sheet events perhaps)

I am trying to make the spreadsheet as robust as possible by elimiating unexpected inputs.....I hope i havent asked too much for 500 points!
