    This isn't currently possible inside Logic Apps, and it does come with some complications in .NET. Office 365 doesn't support password protecting workbooks, so you can't do this through the Graph API.

    That leaves us with 2 options:

    1. Use the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel library for .NET to set up and protect your document. This library actually calls the installation of Office on that machine to complete tasks, so you would need to setup a Windows VM with Office installed to run it.
    2. Work with a 3rd party library that includes this functionality. There are a few out there, and whether you need a VM or could use something like Functions depends on the capabilities of that particular package.
