Allow Excel files to be easily compiled into a secure .exe file format to prevent copying.
Excel may be powerful, but its security is WEAK and can be HACKED easily. There are an increasing number of competitors who offer the ability to "compile" Excel files into a .exe file. It would be better if Microsoft offered this ability themselves.
Yes. Totally agree, sometimes (Most times) excel contains a lot of sensitive business and personal related data. There should be a Compile to exe button, or "Create web app"- button.

I would prefer that excel compiles into a 'secure' file format almost like you can save a powerpoint as a presentation, or a Word file as a PDF. It does not have to be an .exe or .com file, one could still require users to have excel installed to be able to open it

Better idea: make the actual Excel files more secure.
