I am sending a spreadsheet to a person and he may do modifications in the spreadsheet. But there are columns in the spreadsheet which he do not need to know about so I would like to hide the columns and lock them and maybe password protect the sheet so that they cannot do any modification on that column and he cannot unhide the column. What I would like to know is if there is a way to hide and lock a column and no one can unhide the column except me. But still anyone can view and edit other columns in the spreadsheet.
