To allow users to edit only specific ranges when working in a shared workbook:
Select Review -> Allow Users to Edit Ranges (in Changes Group).
This advanced option allows multiple users (for example, when working on a network) to update data in a well defined and private area. Each workbook user is allotted a range in the sheet with a unique password.
