  • Sure, just edit the NTFS permissions on the Excel file (or its folder) and remove access for the users that shouldn't see the file. One easy way to do this is to move the Excel file into the MyDocuments folder, which by default only has permissions for the owner.

    Since you asked in the Training and Certification forum, let me point you to the training courses that can teach you about these topics:

  • Why are you letting them use your computer if they're stealing your personal information from it.  Lock them out entirely from your computer.  They're not your friends if they're stealing your info.
