We do our timesheets on an excel spreadsheet sent to us every pay period. Suddenly mine will not open. It says file cannot be shared. It is sent correctly as the other employees will open. What could be the problem and solution. Thanks

With your permission this info is the only thing I can offer you for your problem.

Maybe this will help you.

Why can't I open my file in Word on a mobile device?

If you edit the files through Dropbox.
Please try to download these files to iPad and then open them.
You can still try to change the settings:
As far as I can remember (I don't have an iPhone ... anymore): Settings - General - Accessibility - Select Read Out - Deactivate

 

So my Latin is at the end as far as iphone and Excel are concerned, hope to have helped you.
