    Hi Lorrie:
    You protect individual cells by FORMAT|CELLS|PROTECTION ... Locked
    However you must protect the Worksheet to effect locking of the cells. You protect the worksheet by TOOLS|PROTECTION|PROTECT SHEET ... with an optional password. Without protecting the worksheet, locking of the cells does not take effect.
