Worksheet Protect

Hi,

We would like to protect our produced excel file. We use worksheet.Protect(, ,). However, we noticed that after that excel creation (call it protecttest.xls), if you open a new excel file and add an external reference to protecttest.xls, it will access that value without requiring the entry of a password.

I understand that this is the standard way excel works. However, if possible, we would like to create a protected excel file that is NOT accessible to external reference as described above.

Does Aspose allow for this type of protection of the protected Excel file?

Thanks

Daniel

Hi,


Please see the document:

I think you may try to encrypt or password protect the Excel file for your requirement.

Thank you.
