Excel File On Corporate Network
Posted on 2013-01-30
I have created a workbook for employees to use. I was planning storing a copy of this file on our corporate network - but I think I might have problems with that.
My goal was to have one centralized location that employees can go to and get their copy of this workbook. One real risk, is that I know employees will just open & run this workbook from the current network location it resides in and use it. But that will be a problem, cause the copy on the network always needs to be a brand new untouched version.
The last thing I want is an employee using this workbook while it's on the network drive. Because when the second user goes to get their copy of the workbook, it will have someone else's data already in it.
Do I have any options? Ideally, I want the file to live on the network drive for simplicity of having one central place all employees can go to. Is my only real option to keep doing what I've been doing, which is sending this file via email to users on a mailing list?
Thank you in advance!
