    Question Updating Excel document over a network?
    How do I get the data in an Excel document to be updated on 2 other macs on the same wireless network, when I have updated it on my mac?

    For example: if all 3 macs have the same Excel document, when I make a change to the Excel document on my mac, what can be done so that when the other users open their Excel document, they see the updated version that I have just changed?

    (Excel is the one from Microsoft Office X.)

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Easiest way is to e-mail them the updated file.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    System Preferences>Sharing.

    Share a folder on the network where you will store the file, make sure you have user permissions setup so that you have to enter a password to access that folder on the network, of course, then just open that document from the network share and everyone on your network can view/edit/save.

    I am running Tiger, so how would I create a shared folder and would it be possible to create an alias for the file in the shared folder that could be placed on the desktop?
