Hello,
Hoping someone would know how to do this,

I have a specific folder set to "Only people in your organization" can read the file. Within this folder is an excel file. So far users can only read the file and share.

1) how do I make it so that users cannot share this file? I don't want users to keep sharing this file because the site page shows who is sharing this file and it is not somthing I want. I figured if I disable sharing, there would be nothing to show. How do I disable sharing?

2) File itself is read only, which is what I want, but is it necessary to add in the "protect sheet" feature on excel? I figured that if the Excel doc is set to read-only, it should be okay, but not sure.

Any tips?
