I would like to restrict a a form to only having a few cells that are editable. I also want the tabbing on the form to jump through those specific cells. Is there any way to do this? Thanks in advance.

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Take a look at worksheet protection. It will do all those things. Just unlock the cells you want to be able to tab through, then turn on the protection.

PS-Right click on the cell, select format, click on the protection tab, then click the checkbox for locked so it's blank.
Protect sheet
Tools....Protection...Protect sheet.

You can use worksheet protection.

Select the cells that you want editable (you can select multiple non-contiguous cells with CTRL+Left-Click), then goto Format-->Cells-->Protection-->Uncheck Locked, followed by Tools-->Protection-->Protect Sheet-->Add a password of you want.

Tab will then move you to each subsequent cell from left to right, then down.

Hope that helps,

Smitty
