Mas e no caso de campos da tabela que precisam ser protegidos com fórmulas, para que o usuário não exclua as informações de algumas células da tabela?

If you follow these steps and it still doesn't work for you. Look for a hidden column next to your table. I had that happen to me and I had to delete some text out of some cells in that hidden column. After that, it worked again!
