Glossary Item Box

You can restrict how much of the sheet in which the user can enter data. You can set the size of the sheet in terms of rows and columns. You can hide rows or columns so the user does not have access to them at all, or set them as frozen so that users can see them but cannot move them out of view by scrolling. For more information on hidden rows and columns, refer to Showing or Hiding a Row or Column. For information on frozen rows and columns, refer to Setting Fixed (Frozen) Rows or Columns. For information on setting the number of rows and columns in a sheet, refer to Customizing the Number of Rows or Columns.

You can restrict the user from entering data beyond the data already in the sheet. Set the RestrictRows property and RestrictColumns property to restrict or allow the user to enter data in a row or column on a sheet that is more than one row or column beyond the last row or column that contains data.
