Question for officeonline

Several cells in my local excel file are locked. After using officeonline for online editing, I found that all cells in the file are locked and cannot be edited and modified normally. What is the reason for this?

    @灼 尹 ,
    Welcome to Q&A forum!

    • How did you lock your cells in your file?

    Please check and make sure you are following the steps in Lock or unlock specific areas of a protected worksheet.

    I created a test file by using Microsoft® Excel® for Microsoft 365 MSO (16.0.14228.20200) 64-bit on Win 10, and then uploaded it to OneDrive, but I did not encounter your issue.
    I also tried to share my test file with my colleague, and she was able to work just like me.


    • Which browser are you using?

    Please switch to others(such as Chrome) for a check.
