How could I protect the spreadhseet from user input except to two ranges:
I10:I200 and O10:O200?
 

Excel Facts

Back into an answer in Excel
Use Data, What-If Analysis, Goal Seek to find the correct input cell value to reach a desired result
select the range you want to be able to put data in and then go to format, cells, protection and uncheck locked then protect the sheet

Thanks, it worked....

Now it does not allow reading data from internet, I suppose I have to add a sub that takes the protection off before reading data and closes the sheet from writing after it?

This is interesting!
