Hi, I've got an xlsx file with charts, tables, formulas. Initially, the file was created in Microsoft Excel 2007.
Is there a way for me to prevent the file from being opened by Microsoft Excel? Maybe by me messing with the file header or maybe me writing a custom wrapper or even custom encrypt it?
After encrypting/wrapping it, the xlsx file should be a file that is not recognized by Microsoft Excel, maybe with a custom extension.
The only way to open the xlsx file is to open it through my C# program, which decrypt or unwrap it and then displaying it also in C# by using DSO framer. The decrypting/unwrapping and displaying it is done without any xlsx file saved on the hard disk.
If there is a way, can somebody please point me to the right direction?
The first phase in my multi-phase program is to encrypt/wrap it (not sure if it is the right terminology or not).
I only know how to describe what I plan to do but don't know what it the right term for it so am not sure how to even start searching for it in google.
Please advise. Thanks.
