I want to share an Excel file on the network. I would like to be able to have it open up READ ONLY but not alert the user that it's opening up to READ ONLY. Also, since this is on the Network, if someone has this opened up, I'd like to it NOT to notify any other user that may open it up.
The file is used to calculate piece price for our sister company. I want the user to be able to go in and enter the quanity, size and length and get their piece price. It's sad to say, but if they get questions asking them to open as read only, or to be notified when it's ready....it will just confuse them.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can accomplish this?
