Default How do I protect a column in a table?

Simply, I just need to protect the first column in a 2 column table. How do
I do that?

Thank you.

Assuming you mean protection for forms entry: You can't.

The only way to separate a protected area from an unprotected area is to
insert a section break between them, because forms protection is a property
of an entire section. But there is no way to insert a section break between
columns of a table.

In fact, you can't insert a section break between rows of a table without
splitting the table into two separate tables.

If you need to allow entry of text into other cells of the table, insert
text form fields in those cells. Then protect the entire section containing
the table.
