Probably something like this

In Sheet2,
In A1: =IF(Sheet1!A1="","",Sheet1!A1)
Copy A1 across/down to cover the extent

Sheet2 will then reflect entries/updates in Sheet1 for the formulated range

If both spreadsheets are the same, headers, data ranges, titles etc, 
basically same architecture on both sheets, then...

While on Sheet1, hold the shift key down, click Sheet2, now both are 
highlighted.  Now your sheets are "Grouped".  anything you do on one, will be 
applied to the other, including print page set ups. 

Practice, be careful doing this as you can accidentally key something in all 
sheets and not intend to while they are grouped.

Very handy though to set page set up same in all sheets quickly.

Does that help?

Re: Excel spreadsheets over WAN
Forgot to add, I should note a contributing factor to the time it takes for the spreadsheet to load from the remote file server is the 52 inherent worksheets (representing 52 weeks in a year). If I create a new spreadsheet in the same folder with only a couple of worksheets, it opens with no noticeable delay (because it's a smaller file). So, I was still wondering if there are any settings within Excel that changes the way the app handles spreadsheets over a network?
