I have formulas on a worksheet that get ruined when someone decides to copy and paste or cut and paste, does anyone know if it is possible to have a warning message if someone tries this ??

Cheers

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

Good morning Pauljj

Can you not use Tools > Protection > Protect Sheet to stop users from altering formulae? Alternatively you could make use of Ivan F Moalas code to prevent people from cutting and pasting by removing the tools that allow them to do so :
