Hi Richard,
Thanks for writing in our forums!

Yes this can be done, but bear in mind that it is not restricted within the plugin and this is as per design since Excel does not manage users. Instead this must be done at the Server side, you should create users that have only the least privileges to extract data from the MySQL Server (using the GRANT statement http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/grant.html) you should be able to restrict that your users do not update accidentally the data and give them read-only access.

Best regards.
