  • Embedded Exel not retaining protections

    Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I've been searching for an answer for a week...

    I've created an excel spreadsheet in office 365. I have protected and locked the spreadsheet so that only a few specific cells can even be selected. I saved the spreadsheet on my skydrive account, and got the embed code (tried both html and java). When I embed the spreadsheet in my web page, everything works perfectly fine EXCEPT the protected fields are no longer protected. Users can click on/select fields that have been locked. If they try to edit the fields they get the error that I put in place, which is good, but they should not even be able to select those fields.

    I have verified that the protections work correctly on my desktop version, and have verified that the version saved to skydrive is the correct version. But when I embed with web apps, the fields are not locked.

    Am I missing something? Is there a like of code I need to include, or an additional step I need to include that I am not aware of?
