Hi !

I'm just developing a new PowerPivot dashboard - the source tables all have a country field in them.

I want to create country specific versions of the dashboard where the users can't access the other countries info either directly or by opening up the data model and poking around in the background.

The dashboard will be issued to users so they won't have a direct link to the source data file. I could filter each table in the data model by country but there are numerous tables. Also I could lock down a slicer.

Is there a more elegant way?!

Many thanks in advance for any advice received :)

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

All protection in Excel can be removed in a few seconds except this
