    I know this is probably a longshot, but figured I would give it a go since you guys seen to be regular wizards when it comes to Excel.

    I have a workbook, which dozens of people will be accessing via our Intranet. When they are viewing it, I do not want them to see the formulas, which the entire book basically is. But I cannot replace these with values because the workbook contains a combo box that directs values in the major spreadsheets.

    Is there anyway to "hide" the formula without losing their functionality?

    Thanks

    look at Tools Protection

    Protect the cells that have formulas.

    This will make the formulas invisible.

    The protection is not very secure.
