Several LAN users entering data on same file

Hi, I am in a tricky situation. I have a shared excel file on my system into which several users need to enter some data. if 2 persons on two different machines simultaneously opens the file, the first person first saves and then the second person saves, the contents of the first person will obviously get overwritten. Is there anyway to avoid this without using any version control tool? Please respond.

Sharepoint would be a solution and Office 2010 delivers the possibility to block specific areas in a excel file
