    Question Hide Formulas when others will know the protected password

    I am creating a spreadsheet that I will be sharing with another company that will cross reference both of lines of products. I want to hide the formulas I developed but at least a few employees at the other company will have the password for the protected spreadsheet as well.

    Is there a way to hide the formulas from those that have the protected password as well?

    Well, if someone knows Excel well enough, there's nothing you'll be able to do I believe. One thing you can try though is to go to "Options", then "Advanced", then in the "Display" section, UNCHECK "Show Formula bar".

    Rule 03: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this.

    I have added the crosspost reference for you today. Please comply with this and all our rules in the future
