    Hello People
    I am wondering does the excel have a security feature. So it allows certain people to have the right to modify the data, and the other people can only have read - only right.
    If not, is there a way to create that kind of security feature
    Thank you very much for trying to help

    Tools-Protection, Protect Worksheet gives you the ability to password-protect sheet.

    To add the feature to an already existing workbook, click save as and then choose Tools>General Options on Excel 2000

    On Excel 97 it's under Options after you have pressed Save As.

    Choose different passwords for modify and Open.
