    Sharing workbook among few users

    I will have a shared workbook on a network drive.
    I want this sheet as read-only to all users and update access to some users . How do we achieve this ?
    To achieve the same I found the following options
    Option 1
    Tools ===> Protection >== Protect and share workbook
    and then provide the password. Now this password is only known to the users who needs to update the sheet and the rest all will get a read access
    (I can't test this now, I don't have access to network drive as I write this post)
    Option 2

    From the File option, Permission, Do not distriub,,
    But this requires a software to be installed from microsoft side which is not allowed in our shop.
    Can the option 1 work ?
    Any other options ? I

    A better option is Tools > Options > Security
    Enter Password to Modify and Tick Read Only Recommended
