What is INFO in MS-Excel?
The Microsoft Excel INFO function returns information about the operating environment. The INFO function is a built-in function in Excel that is categorized as an Information Function. It can be used as a worksheet function (WS) in Excel. As a worksheet function, the INFO function can be entered as part of a formula in a cell of a worksheet.
I can say, the INFO is a key tool in MS-Excel Workbook because with INFO can cover a lot of important functions like: by using Encrypt with Password; can make a password protection to require a password when it open, Protect Workbook Structure; can be protected Workbook from stealing or editing and adding something new or saving Workbook for another copy in a different name that you already have entered and saved data, by using Protect Current Sheet; can control the type of changes others can make in the current sheet, by using Check Accessibility; is able to check the Workbook for content that people with disabilities might find difficulty to read, by using Add a Digital Signature; can add invisible digital signature to ensure the integrity of your Workbook, By using Mark as Final; is able to let readers know that the Workbook is final and make it read only and by using Manage Workbook; can recover or delete unsaved Workbook in the MS-Excel.
Let me give an example for protecting the Workbook.
