Editing excel file

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?

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

Open in new window

Arno KosterCommented:
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
