Excel For Noobs Tutorial: Workbook Info Options (Security Warning, Compatibility, Protect Workbook, Inspect Workbook, Versions)
The Info section of Excel offers you different options related to your Excel files. To access the Info pane go to File and click on Info. Here you will see 3 options, Protect Workbook, Inspect Workbook, and Versions. There are sometimes even more options available in the Info section depending on the workbook file that is open. For example, if you open a workbook file that was created using an older version of Excel then an option title Compatibility Mode will be listed. There may sometimes be an option titled Security Warning if for some reason something about the file has triggered Excel to display this warning. Below we will briefly cover the options available in the Info pane.
Security Warning: If you were notified with a security warning when you opened a workbook there will be a Security Warning option in the Info pane.

Compatibility Mode: If you have opened an Excel workbook that was created using and older version of Excel, the compatibility mode option is made available. If this is the case then some new features that were not available in the older version of Excel will be disabled. If you would like to enable these new features you can click the Convert button to convert the file to a newer type of Excel file.
Permissions: Here you can add security measures to protect your workbook. There are five options available, Mark as Final, Encrypt with Password, Protect Current Sheet, Protect Workbook Structure, Restrict Permission by People, Add Digital Signature.
