Is there a way I can use forms and only allow adding new forms and not allow users without a password to edit previous forms. Example: I would like serveral people to log on a sheet there names, comment and the amount of time on a project and not allow them to edit previous users data. Any help you can give me would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

If you're using VBA to get the data from a form to a worksheet, you could protect the sheet the data goes to. Leave it protected, except when your code needs to write to the sheet. Unprotect it, write the data, then protect it again.

There's got to be an example here that does this, unfortunately I don't have the time right now to search the forum...almost time to go home. :coffee:
