We have an excel file on a network drive that everyone can access.  Someone changed something on the file and we are trying to determine who that was.  Is there anyway to do this?

you could try opening it, adding a macro with this code and running it.
MsgBox ActiveWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last author")

Open in new window

same information can be retrieved without using macro by

- click on the round office button (excel 2007) ZA010077102.gif
- point to "Prepare"
- click "Prioperties"
- point to "Document Properties"
- click "Advanced properties"
- on the "statistics" tab you will find the 'last saved' by information
