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

I’m not sure if this can actually be done.

Protecting documents with options from Excel are program and client specific, and I’m not aware of any method to actually universally disable the feature. You may want to look into some custom VB scripts to disable Microsoft Office functionality.

Hope this helps!
