How to fix .DOC and .XLS sharing problem

By chiangchien ·
Have you ever noticed the annoying window that pops up when you try to open a microsoft office file that someone is already in? It asks you if you would like to open a read-only copy. Is there any way around this? The main reason why this pops upfor our company is when we look at our to-do lists. They are in Excel format and the bosses are always adding to them while we try to complete them. Therefore, the file-sharing/access problem occurs rather frequently. Does anyone know of either away around this issue or a good to-do program that avoids or provides the solution? Please advise as I would like to get this issue of my to-do list soon! Thank you.

Have you tried Tools>Share Workbook in Excel?
Access also shares quite well.

While you can share an excel workbook and databases are designed to work that way, there is no way to do this with a Word document.
