Hi
I have a work book with many tabs, Excell 2019 the book or tabs sheets are not protected. The menu options (all except 3 of) in the tab menus are greyed out.

Can anyone assist as to why this is? Note it is only this one workbook as with other workbooks it does not apply.

Regards

Suggest you upload a sanitized copy of your workbook to a third party site, ie. Dropbox or Box.net so that it can be analyzed.

Are you sure the workbook is not protected? On the 'Review' tab does the 'Protect Workbook' icon have a grey background?

Which 3 of the menu options are still available?
