Hi,
I had hoped to attach the small troublesome excel file (size: A1:F374) but just discovered I do not have permission. Not sure how to demo what the problem is without attaching the file - can I be given permission please?
The file has numerous zeros (0). I want to use Replace to replace all zeros with a one (1). However I get the message that this is a protected sheet and I should unprotect it. I don’t believe that is correct – I cannot seem to find that it is in fact protected. So, the net result is that I cannot do the replacing of zeros with ones. I would much appreciate your help please.
Thank you,
Alfie101.

Hi,

I have put a copy of the problem file in the filebin free file sharing site at this address: https://filebin.net/6ohsxq2bb325qiaj

Would much appreciate detecting why this will not let me Replace zeros with ones (or other such manipulations)?

Thank you,

Hi and thanks,

Seems excel was stuck for some reason. Now unstuck and Ctrl H and Relace working just fine. A mystery.

Sorry to trouble you. Thanks very much.
