  1. One of the easiest ways to share workbooks among team members is with the Excel add-in Distributed Spreadsheet. Users are assigned to individual pages, version tracking is automatic and the distribution and collection process is fully automated. Sharing workbooks using only Excel’s tools is quite a challenge. Distributed Spreadsheet makes it easy.

  2. Excel is a a wonderful product but expensive for an SME like ours. What we have instead is Google Spreadsheet on our Google Apps account for our company domain. It works perfectly fine and got just enough features to get the job done.
    Nice tips though for MS Office users. I’ll give this one a try. Thanks.

  3. @Dan the problem with that is if you would rely too much on Google Docs, and then suddenly it goes offline.

    • I’ve been using Google Docs for 2 years now and I didn’t even bother to install Microsoft office on my desktop PC. The real-time collaboration is incredible in Google Docs. Going back to Microsoft feels like a step backwards now. I laugh when I watch others trying to keep document versions sorted out in MS Office. Google Docs isn’t perfect but it’s my choice for collaboration.

  4. Google Docs is the same as Excel.. but some times i find the data to be missing, though i update it.. it gets hanged also..! :(

  6. It was informative. I use excel maximum to maintain all the data of my project.. But, i never know that there is such an option to share the workbook…! Thanks for that..!
