Is it possible to password protect an individual cell(s)? AND, be able to have to have multiple passwords on the same spreadsheet? Here is my situation: I have 3 different users sharing the same file (sheet). Each user would like to password protect their own cells with their own password. Is this possible?

Good evening beastiebill

This is not normally possible with Excel as a built in feature. However I have a workbook available that supports multiple users plus an administrator - each user having a restricted range and can be modified to suit your purposes. The users cannot set up their own passwords but must have this set up for them by the administrator.

This utililises the worksheet protection feature of Excel which is well known for being flimsy (easily removable), but anyone wanting to use it is welcome to it - just mail me.
