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.

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.
