When inserting comment in Excel 2007 on Terminal Server the user is always the same no matter who is logged in
Posted on 2011-03-03
We have a Terminal Server running Office 2007 and some other finance related programs. Because it is finance they use Excel heavily, but the only problem is that when they insert a comment the user listed in the comment (ie.. "username:") is the same user no matter which users is logged in. The username listed happens to be the user name entered when the server was first built.
Is there any way we can change things so that excel starts a comment off with the currently logged in user (Profile based), so that they can track who is making changes to the spreadsheets.
I hope that makes sense, but if not go into Excel right mouse click on a cell and click Insert Comment. You will then see the comment box appear and the username followed by a colon. it is the username that needs to be the same as the logged in user. Office 2007 has recently been installed and this didn't happen with 2003.
