I have a workbook that is shared by multiple users and I want to lock down access to the "Connection Properties" and the "Refresh All" buttons on the Data menu. I have the worksheet password protected but those two options are not grayed out when I protect the worksheet. Should they be? The "Queries & Connections" is also accessible even when I password protect the worksheet. How can I prevent users from accessing these options on the data menu?
