How to save Excel 2010 PowerPivoted workbook for user with no connections ?

I've created a workbook with 4 tabs that access a PowerPivot table to get 4 varied sets of data. What is the best way to save a copy of just the "answers" for a user who does not have PowerPivot or access to our back-end SQL Server tables?

I know I can copy-and-paste-values-and-formats into a new workbook, but doing that for all 4 reports seems like more work than I should have to do.

Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure I understand your question but you could try printing them to a .pdf file using CutePDF or a similar program.

I'd like to send a vanilla Excel workbook to the user, with the data in cells so it can be sorted and summed, but leave out the pivot and data connection functionalities.

I'm not sure there are any other options if you don't want to send the live pivot. (they can still use it without PowerPivot).

I'm splitting the points since there's no apparent way to really do what I asked for. Thanks folks!
