    Hi, ekram,

    AFAIK no chance - only you protect the structure of the workbook and the contents worksheets (and thatīs not a secure limitation).

    You may consider to put the necessary calculations into a hidden sheet and only rely to the results on cells from there but Iīm afraid you would be better off with a database instead of Excel.

    Ciao,

    Re: Need to disable vlookup, lookup and other formulas like these permanently .

    Hi patel , actually I need to make a excel file where nobody can use vlookup , lookup etc formulas , they need to manually type or copy past from other file to my file.

    Hi HaHoBe, is there any way to make a default result for any kind of vlookup , lookup etc formulas using vba , or directly disable these using vlookup?
    If I use review>protect and share workbook option with password , then maybe nobody can link with my files , but I need to stop linking cells from other files to my files .
    So, what should I do now for this?
