How do I share my workbook with a email group in my address book

1 Reply


To share an Excel workbook with an email group from your address book, you can follow these general steps:

  1. Save Your Workbook: Ensure that your workbook is saved in a location accessible to all recipients. This could be a shared network drive, cloud storage (like OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.), or any location where others can access the file.
  2. Compose an Email: Open your email client and create a new email.
  3. Attach the Workbook: Attach the Excel workbook to your email. Most email clients have an "Attach" or "Insert" option where you can select your workbook file.
  4. Insert Email Group: Insert the email group from your address book into the "To" or "CC" field of your email. The steps may vary depending on your email client, but usually, there's an option to choose recipients from your address book.
  5. Send the Email: Once you have attached the workbook and added the email group, send the email.

Please note that the ability to share workbooks directly from Excel may depend on the email client you're using. If you're using Outlook, for example, you might see an option to share directly from Excel.

Additionally, if you're using cloud storage like OneDrive, you might want to consider sharing the file from there. This allows others to collaborate on the same file in real-time, and you won't need to send large attachments via email.

Remember to consider the file size, especially if you're attaching the workbook directly to the email. Large attachments might be blocked by email servers, and it's generally more efficient to use cloud storage for sharing large files. The text was revised with the AI.

You'll get a quicker and more accurate answer, and those who want to help don't have to invest time guessing the problem.

I recommend: Always inform about your Excel version, operating system, storage medium/hard drive, OneDrive, Sharepoint, etc.).

If possible, add a file (without sensitive data) and use this file to describe your project step by step, or add photos with the appropriate description.

Don't forget that not every Excel user has a clue about every job and what you see he can't see.
