Posted on 2014-11-08

Hi

Using Excel for windows Office 2013.

Is there a way to lock a row so no changes can be made in it?

Also if I hide a row will that prevent changes to be made in it, such as row and column color changes etc.

Thanks!

Select the rows you want to protect and do Home>Format>Lock Cells
Next, lock the sheet with Home>format>protect sheet
