Can I track changes made to a shared file per userid.

I was wondering if I could track who made what changes in a shared excel 
file.  If so, how should I go about it?

Thank you in advance!

On that same Tools|Share Workbook dialog, there's an Advanced Tab.

There's an option (default is On???) that allows you to track those changes.

When you're ready to look at the changes, 
tools|track changes|accept or reject changes

(You may already have it turned on.)

But be aware that if you keep lots of changes, then excel can slow down.

Hello Dave,
Thank you for your input.  I know doing this will track the actual changes 
made to the spreadsheet, but will this also track who made the changes?  I 
need to know the person or userid who is making the changes.  Any suggestions 
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again!

Yes, it does now when I choose "List changes in separate worksheet" - it 
displays the user along with other information on a separate worksheet.  
Again, thank you for your help and your time!

Changing Cells and entering data in them
Thanks for the help again. Big thanks to Steve you've got me this far. I went out and bought a book, but it's like reading a foreign language. I was informed today that I can't have message boxes come up. I need to have the code point at the cells and if they are blank turn which ever one is blank red or if both are then both turn red then pause for each cell to be filled in. Cell F14 "Last Name" then automatically go to Cell F16 "First Name" on tab or enter. Basically if Cell F22 or F23 has an X in it, Cells F14 an F16 turn red and cell F14 has the focus...

Using Relative path for XML data file?
Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the user to download to their local machine.

The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user will store their...

OL2007 not move big files from outbox to sent
Hi, We have 2 computers with separate email accounts on Roadrunner. One machine has XP with Outlook 2002-sp3 and works without any problems.

Landed Costs ability to apply different rates per line item

Revision level tracking
We're struggling with making revision info more visible for our inventory handlers and making it more visible in GP to see available inventory by revision level.
