    Hi all , I was hoping that some one could help me out on this one , I think it can be done the way I want it too work but I'm not sure how to go about it.
    I have a few Excel sheets that I need to access around my Home or office for that matter.
    I want to be able to access on all Computers (or something like that)
    for some reason I remember reading something about this and when one person opened the file and edited lets say he a user when the creator opened this file again a pop would come up too inform He/She of an update , all updates showed up as red I think ?
    Now I use Office 2003 and I can't seem to do this at all . the closest I seem to get shared work space. Which is at the end of my Office 2003 book pg 795.

    anyone know of a simpler way then this workspace thing ?

    Thanks

    Tools - Track Changes?
    That will highlight all changes and note who made them.
    Periodically you can "accept all" changes to clean it up.

    Yes, a shared file. As long as the computers all have the right networking, permissions, access and sharing abilities (a whole other issue unto itself) then you should be able to do this.

    You can share, but only one at a time can have it open.

    There are ways, however, to have multiple copies open at the same time.
