Finalizing and Protecting Workbooks
The Excel finalize workbook feature lets you keep private data private, while the Excel protect workbook feature keeps data safe.
- Open an existing Excel workbook. If you want, you can use our practice workbook.
- Run the Spell Check to correct any spelling errors in the workbook.
- Use the Document Inspector to check the workbook. If you are using the example, remove all personal information from the workbook.
- Protect the workbook by marking it as final.
