Need to be able lock/unlock a sheet or workbook on my iPad. This is a serious limitation. Please fix.
Not be able to protect/unprotected a sheet on my iPad is a serious limitation for me. It defeats the purpose of having multiple devices.
Crazy that this function isn’t available across all devices. Is this unique to apple products, or would the problem exist on an MS OS device?

Microsoft/excel have known that "protect-lock" for an excel sheet on ipad does not work for a long time. Are there any plans to fix it? IS SOMEONE WORKING ON IT? PLEASE
Yep this is a pain. (First world problem but still a pain). I’m travelling and don’t really want to carry a laptop and a iPad Pro - lazy I know but hey ho that’s why I bought the iPad Pro.
Now I’m stuck in a hotel and need to open and modify a sheet within a excel workbook and I can’t. - bloody annoying...
This is a serious issue and Microsoft shouldn’t be charging for an application that is not fully functional across operating systems. Can someone work on this? It’s been so long since this was identified!!

Seriously! The iPad Pro is almost as big as my MacBook and it should be able to unprotected sheets I have made on my laptop so I can edit them and re-protect.
Especially since I am about 2000 miles away from my MacBook right now! You would think your iPad could do it, then you remember its Microsoft.. Sad.....
2018 and no way to password protect a worksheet?
Come on Microsoft!
At the very least, some way to unprotect a sheet (especially ones that do not have a password) is vital!
