Hi,

 

Regarding: Lesson 7-13 Share a workbook on a network.

  

I am using Windows 7 - 64bit and office 2013.

It is apparently impossible in Excel 2013 to open 2 instances of the same file as used in the course.

Can somebody know how to do it?

 

Thanks,

 

Jean-Marie

Hi Jean-Marie,

 

Excel 2010 does work in a different way to Excel 2013 (it has changed from a multi-document interface to a single-document interface which is a great change for the better.  ExcelCentral now offers courses for Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 so you should use the Excel 2013 courses to learn Excel 2013.  

 

Please reply if you need any more assistance.
