I am using Excel 2000. I need to protect the cells that contain formulas so the remote data entry people don't corrupt the data needed by the CPA at the end of the year. How do I do this?

The options when I go to tools/protection are protect sheet, protect workbook, and protect and share workbook. Nothing for cells themselves.

I am a basic user, so anyhting fancy will need to be plain.

I appreciate yur help! Thanks in advance!

If the cells are locked in their formatting (to do this select the cells that need to be locked and right click choosing format cells, choose the protection tab and make sure the locked is checked) then all you will need to do is protect the sheet and provide a password to do this.

Select the cells where you want users to enter data > Format > Cells > Protection and uncheck 'Locked'.

Then Tools > Protection > Protect sheet.
