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.)

Thanks.

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?
