    Protect it with a password? You can enable certain cells, columns, rows or areas as user editable. Or just protect the whole sheet.

    By Using Tools > Protect Sheet, you can password protect the sheet and only allow certain areas to be changed; everything else, including headers, is locked. Google for 'excel protect sheet' will bring up plenty of good help pages on the exact details of how to do it, so I won't re-invent the wheel.
