How can I create column which could by readable by defined users

Hello, I need to create a collumn which contains secure information. This information /salary/ is only for some users /group/ readable. 


Is it posible to create collumn with restricted access?

    If your users are Viewers or Editors, you could lock and hide the column.


    See info on privileges / access rights here:




    However, that is prone to error, if a person with Admin rights unhides the column and then saves the data.


    Best would be to create a separate sheet (in a workspace that users can't access) for this sort of information.

    I had several such sheets for my team - and created links between the sheets and linked between data I wanted me and my team to be able to see so it was maintained in one place.


    Hope this help.
