Hello Everyone,

Is there a way to have an active formula which does not show the formula. I want to provide a workbook to another person, but do not want them to see how I arrived at the formula.

I know how to protect the formula but it could still be wrote down and copied.

THANKS!!!!

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

Select the cell(s) with the formula and choose Format Cells. On the Protection tab check Locked and Hidden and click OK. Then protect the worksheet.
