    Well... you can't exactly do that through the standard user interface

    You could do this though:
    • Hide all the rows except row 1
    • Hide all the columns except A
    • Protect the worksheet
    This would force someone to unprotect it before they could unhide the rows and columns.

    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.)
