Link Worksheet Form Controls with Cells on Protected Worksheets without VBA Macros in Excel

Add to Favorites

Simple method to use Excel Form Controls and ActiveX Controls and link them to cells on protected worksheets without using VBA or Macros.

This allows you to use formulas and functions based off of the user's input into Form/ActiveX Controls while at the same time protecting the entire worksheet and hiding the linked data so that the user cannot change or break anything in the worksheet

This tutorial combines a couple different tricks in order to effectively hide and protect the linked cells without the need for using any kind of code or VBA, which makes the file much easier to maintain and manage in the long-run and means that you do not have to use a macro-enabled workbook in Excel.
