I'm trying to share an Excel 2007 Workbook with Sharing capability.
I already tried sharing it over the network from my computer and it worked perfectly. Multiple users were able to open/edit/save it at the same time. Excel took care of merging the data. But. My machine isn't always on, so this is not really a solution.
So I tried WebDAV. I opened an account on www.myDisk.se, and shared my workbook from there. But it works differently:
- It only allows one user at a time to have write persmissions
- All other users have read-only (with notify) permission
- Saving the file isn't always working (file has been disconnected error)
- Closing the file doesn't remove the user from the users that use the file...
My question is: Should WebDAV (if installed and configured properly) work similar to regular network share? If it should, I should try some other WebDAV hosting service because myDisk isn't working as intended.
I should point out that I don't know the details and capabilities of WebDAV protocol.
