User permissions in MS Excel

I have a question on sharing an MS Excel file. Is it possible to restrict a file so that each user can modify only his own tab within that file? Also, is it possible to, under the same of restrictions, have a group of admin users who can modify all the tabs?

Hi,

You did not mentioned the version of Office you are using. In 2007 you can try from ‘Review tab’ under ‘Changes’ go to ‘allow users to edit ranges’ options.

Good Luck

    By Tab I suspect you mean sheet and you can set protection on each sheet with a different password and only give the right password to the person who enters data on that sheet. But everyone can see all of the sheet. My suggestion is use a different file for each person or group and a master that takes the data from all the rest to compile your final report. If the number of people involved exceeds 10 you are better served by using MS-SQL for proper data access controls and forms. Any more then 10 people and protecting data, multiple user access. and even the volume of data will overwhelm the engine in excel.
