I want to save a copy of my spreadsheet to send to someone, without them seeing my calculations. I need to convert the equation, save the answers as they appear in number format. I know there is an easy step but can't find the terms to search it properly. (Excel) Can someone please assist me?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can hide formulas by right clicking on the cells and select format cells and under the protection tab select hidden. This only works if you also protect the sheet under the review tab in 2007. This hides your formulas but also when someone clicks on the cell it shows a blank field where the formula normally resides. But the cell it self still contains the data. Carlos way works if you want it not protected as well.

    Copy the cells and paste to a new workbook. Paste the values only using the "Paste special" option Carlos suggested.

    I usually use the paste special .. and use values only and then send it out in a new worksheet.
