Excel file save as with vba


Is there an function, that when I have my main program (Excel .exe file) and let this sheet save as pdf and save it as excel. Is it possible that this excel file, have the same xlspadlock priority or an link to the main? (or that the excel file is an .exe file like the main program)

Kind Regards

That is not exactly what i mean.

I have a vba code that export a excel and a pdf file. But what i want, is that that exported excel file, have the same xlspadlock security as the main program. The main program, is used by another computer than the creator computer where xlspadlock is installed.

I hope that i informed you enough.

Kind regards
