Excel Office 365 ProPlus - I am now running this version of Office.  I use to could Share a file under the Review Option.  Now that option is not there and it wants me to save it to OneDrive before I can share it.  Is there a way around this?  If so how do I share a file without putting out there on OneDrive?

Tell me more. The file needs to be on a central location to share: OneDrive, Google Drive, SharePoint or a file share. Where will you like to store the file?

With my old version of excel - I could share a file on our company server.  That is what I am wanting to do now but can't seem to figure how to do that with this new version.

So if you file>Save any file to your server, it will automatically be in a location to be viewed or edited by anyone with permission to that File Share. Does that make sense?

Oh also, I think you might be referring to a command that is NOT recommended and may be disabled on your system. The feature called Share Workbook allows multiple people to access the file at the same time. In older versions of Excel, it disabled a lot of the advanced features of spreadsheets and would also cause the files to crash.
With newer versions, the best way to allow multiple people to access the file at the same time is to save to OneDrive or SharePoint.

The technique mentioned in my first comment is all you need to do...by putting the file in a central location, it is available to all members of that file share

By sharing - I mean that they need to be able to use the same file at the same time.

OK so definitely go to File>Share and save to OneDrive or SharePoint. Can that work for you? The other method is no longer supported
