Hello,

I have two questions. First I would like to right a macro to hide sheet tabs at the bottom, but make it so the user cannot go into excel options and unhide them. I have hyper linked buttons that they can use to get to the sheets I want them to see. I also want to be able to protect the worksheet so that sensitive data does not get out. Is there a way to protect the worksheet so that it cannot be hacked? Thanks!

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand
Please note I needed to edit your question to keep it in compliance with rule #11 here: http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99490

Please do not make any references to how or what tools may be used to hack Excel protection, as that would violate that rules. This is also true for any responders.

Not really. I don't do much more than password protection, or putting the file in secure network locations. From what I have read, Excel security does not seem to be all that secure.

If there is something that I absolutely do not want certain people to see, I don't put it in that Excel file that they have access to.
