Sheet Protection NOT Working on Some Locked Cells

Hi there!

I have multiple sheets in a workbook.

Some of the sheets contain stand-alone formulas and some contain linking formulas to other sheets within the same file.

I have locked all of my formula cells and have left the rest (data cells) unlocked. However, when I apply sheet protection, I can still edit some of these locked formulas.

Can anyone help on this one? I'm stumped.

Thx,
Eliz

The only things I can think of are:

1) To double check that the cell is actually locked and
2) Make sure you're protecting the *sheet* as opposed to the *workbook*

The cells containing formulas ARE locked and the sheets (not the workbook) is protected.

Thanks anyway.
