Hi,
I have a command button, which increases a cell by one each time it is clicked. I do not wish this cell to be editable by the person who is using the spreadsheet. I have tried locking it and that just comes up with an error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

You have to set sheet protection as well as locking that cell.

Its probably because you are running a macro to manipulate a protected cell.

It might work if you write code for the command button click to:

1. unprotect sheet
2. increase cell value
3. protect sheet again after value increased.
