Hi I have a form set up in excel with check boxes, and I wish to protect the
sheet but allow users to be able to select and deselect the check boxes.
When I protect the sheet and then use the sheet, an error mesage lets you
know the sheet is protected and read only, I have tried in format control for
the check box to deselect the locked option and lock text option. Its bound
to be simple but help is always welcome.
Try unlocking the cells that are linked to the checkboxes.

I have to go through three Deleted Items folders in order to

Wow, what a hassle with no results from Compaq nor

There is very little if any software that is backwards compatible. How on
earth do you imagine that at the time M2002 was coded they could predict
what changes might be made to the file format in M2003.
