    In Excel 2007, the options and features behind the Office button is hidden in the top left corner of the screen. Click on it once there, choose Prepare, and then properties. Under the Ribbon, that now opens, an area in which you can set the document properties such as author. If you save an Excel spreadsheet, the cell is not limited to the contents, but there are also secured personal information. It may be advisable to delete them if you want to share the workbook to a colleague or business partner in order to retain your data.
