You registered to post a crack for a Microsoft product protection. Way to go.
If you had any respect for my work, which is available for free, you would have had the decency to warn me through a private mail.
Any protection can be defeated eventually, if someone puts enough effort into it. So be it.

Actually, to be honest I hadn't even noticed the protection at all because I just uploaded the spreadsheet to Google Drive and opened it with Google Sheets which lets me edit it freely.

I don't know for sure why you want it protected, but my guess is that you're worried about modified copies with the same filename floating around? (Clearly that could be a bad thing for everyone.) To defend against that you might consider distributing your master reference document as a Google sheet that's world readable. Anybody looking at it via the URL knows that they're looking at the original copy, and and anybody who wants an offline or editable copy for whatever reason can download a copy in Excel or CSV format.

First, huge thanks to Wytnucls for the prodigious amount of work on this spreadsheet. That represents a very high commitment to helping out the community.

That said, I'm afraid I'm among those who were unable to use the spreadsheet in the current form, owing to my eyes being unable to follow a particular line of data across a row, unless I can select the row in Excel so that Excel gives it an outline. Or other tricks like copying selected data to another sheet.  Also freezing the top rows of titles, hide columns I don't care about and so forth.

All this is prevented by the locking.  I can confirm that the workaround from dtmr_e works in Libre Office (though the relevant xml attribute is "protected" not "protection".)  With that fixed, I'm finding the spreadsheet is very useful. Thanks again.

...and this is how you respectfully make your point and voice your concerns to the content producer.  :-+

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

may I suggest we consider adding the extech ex355.  it looks to be a newish release to the ex330 that won Daves $50 shootout however is 6000 count.

I have not used the meter yet and am having a hard time finding anyone that has reviewed it yet. but i was checking to see what the latest offerings were in the 6000 count category and saw it list on extech's site.  Street price looks to be about $90 in the US.

A slightly unusual one - I'd not heard of this company but got an email out of the blue and they are sending me one next week - will do a video review in the next couple of weeks.

Unusual as it has Bluetooth and colour LCD and rechargeable battery, charged via the terminals.
Most of their other DMMs are badged from Uni-T and others.  Although it looks fairly "industrial" it does have uA range
Though not mentioned on the PCE page I think it has datalogging and graphing display judging by this German video :


I have seen some similar-looking ones with other names on,

As well as some with more features but very similar specs, which look like they're from the  same manufacturer

Judging from the part numbers of some of these I suspect it's made by Digitek.

It's just another rebranded CEM meter, probably a DT-9989 by the look of it.   ::)
One smart cookie, better make that two for good measure.

Looks like DT-989 - for some reason my searches didn't find it :
