Need to protect specific cells on my excel sheet.
Solved by B. D. in 18 mins
excel 365 is resetting my protected sheet settings. I protect the sheet, select the items i want users to be allowed to do, save and close. When i re-open the file I cannot do anything with the protected sheet other than select cells. I Unprotect the sheet, click protect and I see that all of the items I originally selected to allow the user to do have been unchecked. It defaults back to checking the boxes named 'Select locked cells' and 'Select unlocked cells'
