We have performance appraisals in Excel format for all of our employees. Employees use one column to rate themselves and their director uses another column to rate them.
The idea is to have the HR rep send the appraisal to the employee, the employee fills it in then returns it via email to the HR rep. The HR rep will then hide the employee score column, lock it, password protect it, and email it to their director so they can be unbiased by the self-scores when rating their employee. The director will then send the completed file back to the HR rep who will un-protect it and print it for the employee's file.
How do you password protect a document so that the column cannot be un-hidden?
