HELP! Sometimes when I am answering an Excel RFP, a cell suddenly becomes locked, making it impossible to edit it afterward. What causes this?” Having an Excel RFP suddenly lock answer cells is exasperating to say the least. But there is a way to spot it and avoid the trap.

Top Takeaways

Learn the following:

  • Why does Excel change a cell from ‘unlocked’ to ‘locked’?
  • How to know if ‘Locked’ is a default property of an Excel Workbook?
  • How to change Excel’s default formatting properties?
  • How to avoid triggering the self-locking in a protected Excel RFP?
