forbid Export and "Send to excel" for a certain object?

Hi

Is there a way to forbid Export and "Send to excel" for a certain object?

The users should be able to export all objects but one in the document so I can not simply uncheck "Allow Export" in the Document Properties".

And it is not enough to remove the "Excel" icon from the objects caption, since you can still right click and export.

Not as far as I know. And they'd be able to copy the data anyway. If you don't trust your users with the data don't show it to them, because there are myriad ways to transfer it to another application.

I've previously used a transparent textbox overlaid on top of the object to do something like this, but obviously this prevents selections in the object underneath.
