    Hi,

    I am using Office 2013. I have a workbook which has to be shared. I want to protect it in a way that none of the options can be changes (like I have enabled 'track changes'. 'highlisght changes from users' etc). I do not want that someone turn off the 'track changes' option or as a matter of fact any other option.

    They, however, should be able to edit the workbook. Is it possible?

    I tried searching but could only see an option to protect workbook structure but noes not protect options.

    -regards

    Is SharePoint available? If so you can set up a document library with versioning that can't be tampered with.
