Is there a way that you can allow users to edit Excel in the web app but not on their local computer i.e. not allow 'Edit in Excel' or 'Open In Excel'.  This is from a security viewpoint of never wanting that Excel file to come off the Share point folder, but to allow users to be able to edit it.

That thread started back in 2011 so maybe there are some more details that someone knows.  There is a difference between someone breaking a data protection policy as it is as simple to do as 'Prt Scr' from some of the most secure systems in the world, but that is about company policies.  I would have thought that as the file is hosted on the Sharepoint site that it should be possible to only allow editing on the SharePoint site.
