How do I lock certain cells in a worksheet and allow changes to other cells? Is their a protection option?
 

Excel Facts

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple
Hi There

First set which cells are to be locked by pressing Ctrl+F1 on the cell in question, select Protection tab the uncheck locked.

Once you have all the cells you want unlocked protect the sheet by going to Tools>>Protect>>Protect Sheet you can enter an optional password.

Welcome to the board.
Select the cells you want to allow changes and through Format>Cells>Protection Tab uncheck the "Locked" option. After this password protect your sheet (Tools>Protection>Protect Sheet)
