Passwords on files

I have created a spreadsheet in excel which contains a lot of confidential information. Is there anyway I can put a password on the file so that anyone that uses the computer can't open it and see it.

Sure you can, when you have created the file, go Save as..., when the save box opens , at the top right corner, select tools > general options, this will show the password options.
(DONT FORGET YOUR PASSWORD!!!)

If you use WinZip you can zip the document and password protect the zip file.
