Excel Collaboration

Occasional Visitor



This maybe a newbie question but I need to find an answer from experts. One of my users is looking for option to share one Excel document among few people but wit only part of rows available for each other. So i.e. user X should be abele to access and edit rows 10-20, user Y  - 21-30 an so on. The owner/author should have r/w access to whole document. Is it feasible at all?
