Excel. How to Lock Individual Cells in a Worksheet

If You Want the Majority of Cells Locked
To lock the majority of the cells on the worksheet, follow these steps:

1. Select the cells that you want to remain unprotected. To select nonadjacent (noncontiguous) cells, hold down CTRL and click the cells that are to remain unprotected.
2. On the Format menu, click Cells, and then click the Protection tab.
3. Click to clear the Locked check box and click OK.
4. On the Tools menu, point to Protection, and then click Protect Sheet. Type a password if you want one, and then click OK.

If You Want the Majority of Cells Unlocked
To leave the majority of the cells on the worksheet unlocked, follow these steps:

1. Select the entire worksheet by clicking the Select All button (the gray rectangle in the upper-left corner of the worksheet where the row 1 and column A headings meet), or by pressing CTRL+A or CTRL+SHIFT+SPACEBAR.
2. On the Format menu, click Cells, and then click the Protection tab. Click to clear the Locked check box and click OK.
3. Select the cells that you want to protect. To select nonadjacent (noncontiguous) cells, hold down CTRL and click the cells that you want to protect.
4. On the Format menu, click Cells, and then click the Protection tab. Click to select the Locked check box, and then click OK.
5. On the Tools menu, point to Protection, and then click Protect Sheet. Type a password, if you want one, and then click OK.

NOTE: If you lock a cell and protect the worksheet, then you cannot type data into the cell, modify the data currently in the cell, or change other attributes of the cell (such as cell formatting).

Locking Excel Cells

) Select the cells, columns or rows you want to be able to TYPE data into.
2) Format / Cells / protection tab
3) Remove the tick from 'locked'
4) Tools / protection / protect sheet and apply protection
You will find that you can only type data in the cells that you selected and then removed the 'locked' tick from.
