Hello, I have another interesting request that may or may not be possible. Surprised

As a student in grade school I remember being given book assignments on a certain type of book. One where the reader kinda got to determine the outcome of the story depending on what he/she thought the protagonist would do in certain situations.

You had a choice of A, B or C and were told to turn to a specific page depending on what outcome you chose. I thought those were very neat because it got the reader even more invested into the story.

I would like to do something like that with my spreadsheet. I know that I can create hyperlinks to link to different parts of the document and such. However, I don't want my readers to be able to look at all of the options and be able to choose the best one. I want them to know that once they choose an option that they can't go back, (unless the story dictates that they would be able to go back).

Is there a way to either prevent the other options from being able to be clicked once one has already been chosen? Or could the other options be erased?

I know this is a unique thing to ask for, so please if you have any suggestions I'll take them, thanks!

You could do this with OO Basic, though I wouldn't recommend it. There are better/easier ways to do what you're trying to do, like this: http://www.textadventures.co.uk/quest/
