hi Ben,

this has been brought up many times before. i am of the personal opinion to upgrade. the newer releases you can designate what the user will be able to do within the worksheet upon protection. i also realize that upgrading is not always possible for everybody. but it's defenitely a benefit of upgrading to a newer version.
