Protecting Worksheets and Workbooks in Excel
Part three of a three-part series of blogs
If you've ever been annoyed by somebody else changing parts of your Excel workbooks it's a good idea to learn about protection to prevent them from doing it again!
When you protect a worksheet you are only protecting the contents of the sheet rather than the sheet itself. This means that even though a worksheet has been protected, somebody could still delete it! If you want to prevent this from happening you need to protect the structure of the workbook.
Even though this worksheet is protected, somebody can still right-click on the sheet tab and choose to delete it!
To protect the structure of a workbook:
Use this dialog box to protect the structure of a workbook.
Type your password again and click OK.
The workbook is now protected from people deleting worksheets, as well as many other actions.
If you've created multiple windows to view a spreadsheet and you want to maintain the arrangement of them you can also check the Windows option in the above dialog box.
You can unprotect a workbook by following almost exactly the same process you used to protect it:
As soon as you click OK your workbook will be unprotected.
