Did You Know?
You do not need to run the Document Inspector to know whether your workbook has
metadata and other private content. Click the File tab and then click Info to display the
workbook’s Information pane.
If the workbook contains any private data, Excel displays a bulleted list of the data types
in the Prepare for Sharing section. This section also tells you whether the workbook has
accessibility issues (see Chapter 1) or compatibility issues (see Chapter 2).
If you do not see any private data types listed in this section, then you do not need to
run the Document Inspector.
