hi all

i have hundreds of excel files which i want to share for multiple users

i can't do that one by one

is there a way to do that in one step?

we all run office 2019

Get Office 365 and save the files to OneDrive would be my answer, but I can iagine that isn't a viable option for you? ALternatively, you should have a Microsoft account with associated OneDrive. Put the files there in a dedicated folder and share the entire folder with your users. Instruct them to edit the files in the browser rather than in Excel desktop,

Thx for your reply.
No, office 365 and onedrive is not an option. Everything needs to be on our local server...

In that case I would like to advise not to share all those files, the shared file option is very error-prone and buggy.
