Excel shared workbook in Sharepoint 2013


I have an excel shareed work book that users eventually get issues. I have a SharePoint 2013 server setup and installed. Is there a way to utilize SharePoint to handle this excel file. Right now I just have a link to the file, that is located on a file server.
They need multiple people updating and editing the excel file.

Thanks in advance

You will need to setup Co-Authoring:

Jamie McAllister MVPSharePoint ConsultantCommented:
Co-authoring doesn't work for Excel unless you're using Office Web Apps.

It would work with other Office document formats, but Excel does not support it. Installing Office Web Apps is a solution to this.

“Co-authoring is easy to use from the end user’s point of view. When a user wants to work on a document in Word 2013, PowerPoint 2013, OneNote 2013, Visio 2013 or one of the Office Web Apps, he or she merely opens it from SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online, as usual. If another user already has the document open, both users can edit the document at the same time. One exception to this is that users can co-author in Excel Web App only if everyone uses the Excel Web App to access the workbook. If anyone uses Excel 2013 or Excel 2010 (the client application) to access the workbook, co-authoring in Excel Web App will be disabled for that workbook while it is open in the client application.”

Post ID: 40634945 states that SharePoint cannot be used for the purpose, and quotes official documentation justifying that opinion. It should be accepted as the answer.
