I have two sheets i want to not only hide but require a password to view. how is this done?
Well... you can't exactly do that through the standard user interface
You could do this though:
This would force someone to unprotect it before they could unhide the rows and columns.
- Hide all the rows except row 1
- Hide all the columns except A
- Protect the worksheet
To request a password to unhide and view a worksheet all in one go, you'd need to resort to VBA code. (We can help you with this, and it's built into Excel.)
