I've created some formulas in my Excel Spreadsheet. I've locked and hidden them so that employees don't accidentally mess up the formulas by clicking on them. However, when I send the file thru email, people who have access to google docs can see the formulas.

I would like to prevent this! Is there a way to make sure that the Excel file formulas are HIDDEN, and LOCKED for sure, no matter where someone opens them?! Because it seems like protecting the worksheet on Excel itself is not reliable; people didn't require a password to see the formulas on google docs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!Thanks!
