Yes.

To achieve take the following actions:-

1. Home / Cells group / click on downwards facing arrow in Format / Protect
Sheet / Protect Sheet window should launch / in here the following 3 fields
should have a tick in them:-

Protect worksheet and contents of locked cells

Select locked cells

Select unlocked cells

2. Add a tick to the following field:-

Edit objects

OK

3. To test try and enter data into any cells of the Protected Sheet (you
should not be able to do this).

4. Shift F2 in any cell / comments pane opens / insert comment / click in
another cell / comment goes in successfully.

Save file.

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.

Select all cells.

Format>Cells>Protection>Lock all cells.

Tools>Protection>Protect Worksheet.

Allow users to...........select locked and unlocked cells, edit objects.

Add a password if you want.

Edit objects OK / and then put the password in again and hit OK.
