the tab on a locked spreadsheet goes outside the protected area

 

I tried select-all then locked the sheet

I tried set print area to be only the locked area

but the locked the tab still goes outside my selected area

Hello @charlieo ,

 

I can open the spreadsheet, but cannot unprotect the sheet because it is password protected.

 

I suspect that the cells in column K are not formatted correctly. Unlock the sheet, select the cells in column K, format them and on the Protection tab tick the "Locked" tick box. Then protect the sheet again and set the option to select only unlocked cells.
