Basically this means that in Excel, you can protect your spreadsheet, making other users unable to edit certain cells on your sheet.
This is useful for advanced or complex spread sheets, where you have cells you don't want users to mess with.

How to protect a single cell or row in excel (single cell)


Start by selecting the entire sheet, right clicking, going to "Format Cells", "Protection" and clearing the "locked" checkbox.

Then select the rows or cells you want to protect and turn "locked" on for them.

Finally, go to Tools->Protection->Protect sheet and enable protection - setting a password might be a good idea.

Highlight the cells you want to format. Move the mouse to the highlighted area, press the right mouse button and make sure the locked option is on under the protection tab.

Make sure protect sheet is enabled. To activate it, press the review under the menu options and select protect sheet (if its on sheet) or workbook for more than one sheet.

Prevention of delition of cell which has a formula


If you right click the cell in question and go to Format Cells..., on the protection tab there should be a check mark in the locked box. Go to the tools menu and choose Protect and Protect Sheet, enter a password and your cells will be protected.

Any cells you want to allow changes to when the sheet is protected should have the Locked checkmark removed.

How to protect a single cell in excel from modification


Found on the internet and it seems to work:

The default setting for each cell is for them to start locked. So, you first need to highlight ALL cells in the sheet, right click, choose format, go to the Protection tab and take the tick out of the Locked box.

Now no cells are locked.

Now you need to select the one cell you want locking. Right click, choose format cells, Protection tab and then put a tick into the Locked box.

Locking the cells does not take place until you have locked the sheet. So go to Tools, Protection and Protect Sheet. Add a password of your choosing, and put a tick into every option available to you, EXCEPT the very top option. "Select locked cells" should NOT have a tick in it.

OK that to confirm, and hey presto, that cell can no longer be selected, edited or erased unless you unprotect the sheet by entering the password you chose.

I have solution for your second problem.
You just need to use macros to protect all the sheet at the same time. Just open "Macro>Record new Macro" to insert new macros to your files.

This will save some your valuable time.

Excel Coordinates don't show up in Formula Bar


Heyo. I have had this problem before too. This procedure prevents the cells that contain the formula from being edited.
  1. Select the range of cells whose formulas you want to hide. You can also select the entire sheet.
  2. On the Format menu, click Cells, and then click the Protection tab.
  3. Select the Hidden check box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. On the Tools menu, point to Protection, and then click Protect Sheet.
  6. Make sure the Protect worksheet and contents of locked cells check box is selected.
Good Luck!
