Hi everyone!!!!!

The title may be a little deciving what i'm trying to do is make only 5 different cells on my Sheet accessible. Meaning I don't want the user to be able to click on, arrow to, tab to any other cells than that of the 5 designated cells. I know that you can lock cells and protect the sheet but even with this option a person can still arrow, click and tab to what ever cells they want.

Maybe this isn't possible if not let me know that i'm Crazy!!!!!!

Thanks again and thanks for any help in advance!!!!!!

Good afternoon Mav93

You could use a simple piece of code like this in the worksheet event :

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If ActiveCell.Locked = True Then Range("A1").Select
End Sub

Right click on the sheet tab and select "View Code". Paste this code into the window that opens and close. Whenever a user attempts to select a cell that is locked, they will be referred straight back to A1 - change this to one of your five cells. Worksheet protection needs to be invoked for this to work.
