Hello @rapovets_A2C 

Do you mean editing of the Excel file that is being created? 

Unfortunately, as it is a simple Excel file which the user has access to, the file can be edited. You may want to look into NPrinting and allowing users to create reports in different formats that don't allow direct modifications.

Sonja is correct, there is no means of restricting the use of the data exported to the Excel file by the user.  This would have to be accomplished using an extension that included the extra code to do so I believe.
