Haven't seen anything like this posted anywhere .... I have Excel (and sometimes Word) documents that users open in Microsoft Explorer. Depending on the sensitivity of the document, I would like to be able to prevent the users from being able to do one or more of the following:

1) Print the document
2) Email a copy of the document
3) Save a copy of the document
4) See the path to the document
5) Print screen, paste to Word and print.

The ideal solution would allow me to do any or all of 1-4 above AND still allow the user to use the Excel file to perform calculations.

Any thoughts?
Thanks!
