Excel Magic needed Please read!

I have a Excel Sheet which have ROWS for Employee #1 to # 12 for each given day(Column), once 4 A's are chosen for a Day the Little Combo box for input on each cell needs to disappear for that Column because somewhere between Employee #1 and #12         4 A's have been reached No Higher then 4 A's before the Column gets Locked and Combo box disappears Total must be 4 and 4 A's within those Column which represent a single day. 5 A's are Too Many and 3 A's are 1 shy You guys are the best Help!

Do you mean in the range D9:BC27, each column can have max 4 A's selected and user shouldn't be allowed to select the 5th A in a column if there are already 4 A's exists in that column?
e.g. in the range D9:D27, there are already 4 A's in there so user shouldn't be allowed to select another A in this range. Is that correct?

Yes You understand it correctly D9:BC27 is the Range.
Make Combo boxes stop dropping down if 4 A's are chosen

Please place the following code on Schedule Sheet module. To do so, right click the Schedule Sheet Tab --> View Code --> Paste the code given below into the opened code window --> Close the VB Editor --> Save your workbook as Macro-Enabled Workbook.

I have already placed the following code on Schedule Sheet Module in the attached.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.CountLarge > 1 Then Exit Sub
Dim rng As Range
Dim col As Long
On Error GoTo Skip
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("D9:BC27")) Is Nothing Then
    If Target <> "" Then
        col = Target.Column
        Set rng = Range(Cells(9, col), Cells(27, col))
        If Application.CountIf(rng, "A") > 4 Then
            MsgBox "More than 4 A's are NOT Allowed for a day.", vbExclamation
        End If
    End If
End If
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
