    Prevent users from sharing a file

    Hello,

    I have an excel workbook that I want to send to a lot of people, but I do not want them sending it to other people.

    I know this can verify the user of the computer:

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    but is there something else that I can add that says "if original username does not equal new username, then close app" or something?

    I thought of implementing a password that they would type in, and by typing it in the would activate a macro that cross-checks the original username and the potentially different one..

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    i dont think so all they have to do is disable macros or copy to a new workbook or even open with google docs
