    Forms in a Shared Workbook (Excel)

    Please Help!!! How can I overcome conflicts when more than one user tries to save at the same time? Thanks <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31> <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>

    To avoid conflicts I would advise NOT to use Excel at all to share data. Excel is very bad at sharing workbooks. I've seen many complaints about crashes and loss of data. Consider a different solution.

    I second Hans' recommendation. Access is a much better tool if you are going to share the data.
