Table Tools (to lock table cell size) not on Word/Excel Web Version

Copper Contributor

Hi, I currently only have access to the web versions of Word/Excel through work.


I am currently trying to create a table with cells that are locked in size, but I have not been able to do so. Is there a way or would I have to be given access to the desktop versions?


Thank you.

So far I know, it is not possible to lock cells or specific areas of a worksheet in Excel for the web. If you want to lock cells or protect specific areas, you would need to use the desktop version of Excel.
