VI. Sharing Data with the Rest of the World > 21. Worksheet Collaboration

Chapter 21. Worksheet Collaboration

When Microsoft first created Excel, the personal computer was a piece of standalone hardware, capable of some remarkable feats but cut off from the rest of the world. Today, with local networks and the ever-growing Internet, you have the ability to share information, exchange ideas, and collaborate on projects with a large group of friends or a team of co-workers. Excel joins the party with a set of useful collaboration features that lets groups of people work together to edit spreadsheets.

Collaboration with Excel revolves around two key features:

  • Comments. Excel’s comments feature lets you insert questions, suggestions, or other miscellaneous notes that point to specific cells (like “This number’s wrong” or “Please boost the sales estimate so we can impress the boss”). The person who created the spreadsheet can respond to these comments by modifying the data accordingly.
