    Security (MSOFFICE 2000)

    What is the best way to protect a workbook from other users? I have two people that need to regularly make changes, but I dont want anyone else to even "SAVE AS" to make thier own copy. What course of action do I need to take?

    Semper Fidelis,

    Suppose you secure your workbook within Excel. Still, if others have access to the workbook, what prevents them from making a copy in Windows Explorer?

    That is exactly what I wish to prevent. Just a look and see file for all but two people.

    That would seem to be more of an Operating System (Windows) problem than of an Excel problem. Frankly, I don't know if it's possible, but you might post your question in the appropriate Windows forum to see if the Windows/network experts have tips.
