Data validation, cell protection or other method?
I have used data validation to set parameters for valid data entry and I have
also used cell protection to prevent any type of data entry. What I am trying
to do in this instance is to prevent data entry but, instead of the standard
message that pops up when using cell protection, I want to display a
customized message such as:
Data for these fields must be entered in "Project Assumptions"
Can Data validation be used to prevent data entry of any kind or do I need
to look for a VBA solution?

Is there any way to turn this off..I tried to make the cells all text but
this did not help.

Using Excel 2002.
I have a workbook with 12 worksheets (one for every month of the
year), wherein a lot of the information is looked-up (using VLOOKUP)
in simples arrays.
I saw no point in implementing the arrays as a 13th worksheet, because
I will have a yearly version of my monthly worksheets in one workbook
(so one for 2003, 2004, etc). If I change the array(s), I want them to
be reflected in all referencing cells.
If my workbook containing my arrays (called "Global") is loaded, I
have no problem and the references to it read as:

One way is to use YEARFRAC with a third argument of 1 to get your

However YEARFRAC does produce some annoying but small errors.
