Worksheet Protect


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?




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

Thank you.
