"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1.  On the Review tab, in the Changes group, click Unprotect Sheet.
      Note  The Protect Sheet option changes to Unprotect Sheet when a worksheet is    
      protected.
2.   If prompted, type the password to unprotect the worksheet.
