What is the best way to allow multiple employees to access and alter a single Excel workbook? We have tried Dropbox in the past, but have had problems.


I would use Google Docs. You can work on shared Word documents and Excel documents online and it’s free!

You start by uploading or creating a new document. Then you can share with one or multiple people. You have the option of working directly on the file or downloading a copy of it to your desktop. Just keep in mind if you download a copy of it, it does not sync with what is online. If anyone makes a change online you will have two versions. The one online and the one you downloaded and made changes.
