Hi Excel Freaks,

Does anybody have an idea or suggestion how I could secure a specific Excel file, so that the user cannot export/print or use the save us/cut/copy/paste function as long as the file is open?

Your help or test file would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Patrick

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Search the board, this has been answered many times. At the upper Right of the screen click "Search" add the key-word, try "Password, Security, or Protect."

You can also check your responses on the "Search" utility. I check all my mail there first, before I go on to the main board each time I log in. Just type your user name in the search box. JSW
