How are people editing this data--using SPSS? If so, there's no way to do this in SPSS.
You can lock variables in SPSS Data Entry which is a separate product.

Subject: Trying to lock one column so only I can change it
I have a data set that that multiple people will be making entries on.
While I do want others to make their entries there are certain columns that
I will be setting up in advance that I do not want them to accidently make
any changes to.
How can I permanently lock individual columns so that only I am able to
make changes to them. I am working with a very large data set and minor
mistakes could result in major headaches down the road.
