In this video of this Free Excel training, I will show you how you can lock cells or protect worksheets and workbooks in Excel.

You can protect cells, worksheets, and workbooks in Excel with a password (or without one). Once a worksheet is protected, you’ll need to enter the password to access it (in case a password has been applied).

Note that Excel in-built security feature is not very strong and you can easily open worksheets/workbooks that have been locked. However, if you want to quickly protect it before sending it to your manager/client (so they don’t end up changing anything by mistake), it works well.

    meant to lay a firm and solid foundation to build upon.

    Mr. SB has taken time, mastered the Excel, excited by its capabilities, organised it and prepared to teach his students in a simple and direct way.
    With an average enthusiasm to learn, one can learn from these videos and lay a firm and solid foundation to one’s career, using this excellent program called Excel.

    I see lot of people asking for a pat in the back ( like looking for a certificate of completion ), this is a SELF-HELP course, and I am not sure I will have as much information given to me even if I attended a PAID COURSE.

    And again, since I am learning this on my own to improve MY understanding of spreadsheet program, I can understand and appreciate why some persons want to squeeze a CERTIFICATE out of this as a ticket for a future job.

    Mr. Bansal,
    Pranam to you, as a teacher who put in all this time into these video courses and offering it for free. I bow to you for your kind heart.

    Goddess Saraswathi has blessed you, may her blessings be showered upon you into the future, so we all get at least a part of those blessings.

  123. Hello Sir

    I want to know
    If i want to create a data for my students in which i have name ,address,phone and email
    And categories them using Drop down feature according to their subject

    And automatically update them in DIFFERENT EXCEL DATA AS PER SUBJECT

    MASTER SHEET Having All Students

    And different sheets having name and address according to subject like

    Maths students
    Science students
    English students

  124. hello,
    i used your video for the indirect drop downs and it was very helpful. The only problem that I am having is that some of them work and others do not. Is there an easy fix for this?

  125. As a beginner with Excel, I really enjoy your tutorials and it helps a lot…… thank you Mr Simit, Hope to learn more from you as I go along with more free tutorials.

    thank you

  126. Truly appreciate the time and effort you put in to this for free! Maybe add a donate button or something so people that want to can show their appreciation with moolah! I haven’t even watched one video yet just had to comment.

  127. Today is Thursday, August 8, 2019 and I used these videos to relearn how to use excel. They were extremely helpful. Even more happy this training was free.

  129. Thank you so much for this course it is really helping me you are such a good person to do this for us all.

  130. Thank you Sumit for an excellent training course!

    Now I have a question, not about your course, but if you coluld solve this problem I would be grateful.
    Do you know how to get rid of the usernaume in comments? I know I could go via Alternative/Genereral/Microsoft Office/Username etc. but that does not solve the problem.
    If I put a space instead of my name, or my initials, it still writes “:” in bold character and I want a empty comment when I start writing in it.

    I think it must be solved by VBA code? And I don’t know how to write it, so if you know, and if you can help me, I would appreciate that.

    I think it is very annoying that I have to delete my name (or initials) in everey new comment I make. Must be a way to get around it?

    Kind regards,
    Leif Norinder
