While I don't think you could do this directly, depending on how you want users to access the cell you could

- protect the sheet
- put a textbox with a "***" over the cell
- use a UserForm or other code to write the actual cell contents

Do you have a sample or concept to expand upon?

Cheers

You can use a "Custom Format" as per below...

"*";"*";"*";"*"

As Dave said though you probably need to protect the sheet to hide the contents of the formula bar.
