Please follow these steps....

1) On your sheet, press Ctrl + A to select all.

2) Right click on any of the selected cell and choose Format Cells.

3) On Format Cells window, click on Protection Tab and uncheck the Locked checkbox --> OK.

4) Now select any single cell on your worksheet to deselect all the cells.

5) Now select your formula cells, you can hold the Ctrl Key to select the non contiguous cells.

6) Now right click on one of the selected cells and choose Format Cells again.

7) On Format Cells window, go to Protection Tab and Check the box Locked and close the window.

8) Now click on Review Tab --> Protect Sheet and set your password and confirm the password while prompted and you are done.

9) Now a user cannot access the formula cells.
