Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the file contained within the folder name shown above.

We have a complicated IF function in column F that we don't want to risk losing:

Protecting Cells

Can you imagine losing that IF function with the nested AND conditions?

Turn on sheet and workbook protection to make sure that cells F4:F11 can't be accidentally deleted or overtyped, or the whole sheet deleted.

Try to delete cell F8 and you should get this message:

Protecting cells

You can't change the cell without knowing the password.
