Shared Workbook / Text Box

Hi,

I have some graphs and underneath i have a textbox which i want multiple users to edit with comments. When the workbok is shared excel does not allow them to do this, can i change this or can someone siggest a more efficient way for multiple users to comment on Graphs?

Thanks

You can just have them comment in the cells (rather then text box) below the graphs and that will work great with shared workbooks.

Seamus,

I know you've seen this before from me :)

My recommendation is to just not mess with shared workbooks at all.  They are notoriously unstable.

I couldn't agree with Patrick more.  Shared workbooks were, at one time, the bane of my existence and should never have been invented!

Thanks Patrick and sdwalker. I had already considered this, but users insist on sharing so i will try and work a solution using cells.

Thanks

Well, when that shared workbook gets corrupted, be sure to tell them "I told you so".
