Hi! I have created a spreadsheet in Excel. I am trying to protect some cells while leaving others open so that employees may enter information. I have tried the help menu about selecting cell, choosing lock/unlock, protect sheet and all that jazz, but is still doesn't work. If you could help, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

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

What you will need to do is right click on the cell you want to enter data in. goto properties / protection then uncheck the lock box and check the hidden, when you protect your sheet you will be able to input in these cells only.

Good luck
