Protect worksheet? Excel 2010
Posted on 2011-02-10
I have an excel 2010 worksheet that I want to protect with a password as I do not want others to be able to change the data. However, I want them to be able to sort the spreadsheet as needed. When I go into Protect worksheet option, it gives me a list of items that I can check allow the users to do. I check the box for Sort, and then proceed to enter password, etc.
However, on testing, I open the worksheet, it will not allow me to sort. It tells me that the cell that I am trying to change is protected and therefore read only.
I have all the cells "locked".
Any ideas? Thank you
