Protecting Cells On Spreadsheets

Is it possible to protect cells on spreadsheets especially ones containing formulas. I don't want the entire sheet protected as I want people to edit certain things on the file but not change any formulas. thanks.

Select the whole sheet by clicking the grey square to the left of A and above 1.

Format > Cells > Protection tab, untick Locked and click OK.

Press F5, click Special, tick Formulas and click OK.

Format > Cells > Protection tab, tick Locked and click OK.

Tools > Protection > Protect sheet.
