If a sheet within a workbook is protected.  Can one know which user (from the authorized ones), unprotected the sheet and entered figures?

Trying to achieve knowing how changed what on a specific sheet.  Any ideas?

From the menu -> Tools -> Track Changes -> Highlight Changes and set your options.

And when it's changed by someone else and saved, and when you open it you can go to:
Tools -> Track Changes -> Accept or Reject changes and you will get the details you are looking for plus having the ability to accept or reject the changes.

Good one!

Can I set it up so that I am the only one that can accept the changes?

Thanks,
