    Default How to grant permission to only specific people to open/view/edit file?

    How do I grant only specific people to be able to open, view, edit an excel file? I don't want anybody else besides these two people to be able to even open the file, so I'm not talking about password protecting to prohibit editing a file. I would assume I need to go to the properties, security settings but I'm not sure?

    goto the save dialog box and click on the tools tab, goto general options

    password to open and password to modify

    these are what you are after ?

    This is what I am looking to do, but I don't know what you mean when you refer to the "Save Dialog Box"???
