Hello guys,

I have a situation where i need to restrict the copy/paste function in the whole workbook except for me who i am the owner. Is there a way to do that ? I think that Allow Users to Edit Ranges isn't very helpful because they still can copy/paste inside the file.

Thank you,
Best regards,
Bogdan

Perhaps this will suffice

Place in ThisWorkbook module
VBA Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
    If Application.UserName <> "yongle" Then Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub
