I have a sheet where I want to lock columns that auto calculate with a formula, but have the person entering the data being able to insert a row and have the formulas copy from the locked cells in the column so she never has to be given the password. Can this be done? And how?

@Hicksy This can be done and it is possible Go to Format Cells

 

I can provide you detailed answer but for that please provide your excel file
