Windows 7 > Windows Explorer > Preview of Excel Workbook
Posted on 2013-01-15
Is there an excel vba code that will render an Excel Workbook invisible when viewed from the Windows Explorer ( in Windows 7 ) i.e. I would like to lock the Application down so that:
a) when the workbook is fired up a userform will be fired up to guide the users, and
b) when previewed from Windows Explorer ( WIndows 7 ) the users cannot view the contents in the workbook/ worksheets.
I have been able to hide all worksheets except one lead sheet ( say Sheet1 ) as well as incorporating a Workbook Open Event where a userform fires up when the excel workbook is opened. However, I am still able to view the lead sheet, Sheet1 from the Windows Explorer. How do I prevent users from previewing the contents of the workbook?
