Default Can't type in a cell

When I went into my laptop and tried to type in a cell in an excel spreadsheet I couldn't. Did I hit the wrong key and could it be a number lock or something.
Thanks in advance

Check to see if the cells have been locked on the Worksheet.

Perhaps it is a protected worksheet.
Can you provide more details?

Hi Gary
Follow these steps to unlock the worksheet:
1. Click on the "Review" tab at the top of the screen.
2. In the middle of the screen atg the top it will show a button marked "Unprotect Sheet" if the sheet is locked.
Good luck.
Tony
