After I created my spreadsheet (a basic receipts register) I had selected certain cells and protected them so that these cells could not be tampered with. I saved my document and closed the program. When I opened the program the next day, all of the cells that I had previously protected where no longer protected. What happened to my protection?

Hi Truman,

Cell protection is only activated after you have protected the Sheet.
Go to Tools --> Protect Document --> Sheet and set a password.

I feel like such a ditz... I was looking at the wrong file. My bad. But thanks for the reply though.
