Collaborate in an Excel Workbook

Problem: My team needs to edit a workbook at the same time. I’ve read earlier in this book that you lose too much functionality when you share a workbook in Excel. Is there a better way?

Strategy: Use the Excel Web App.

Sign up for an account at Skydrive.Live.com. Create a team folder in your account and share that folder with other members of your team.

Save the workbook to that folder on the SkyDrive.

In the Excel Web App, many people can simultaneously edit the workbook. This could be great for brainstorming sessions.
