To create a shared excel sheet for multiple user access at real time

How to share an excel that helps multiple user to edit same time

I need an excel sheet , where multiple users ( class 4 employees ) can post mark list of students to an excel in my office, where higher officials need to check the result entered is correct or not whereas other staffs need to download the result before publishing. All the works has to done simultaneously. here is a solution for such issues. Over usage of styles will hang the file. If two users edit the same cell, the excel asks who's data to be saved while saving the document. If two users try to save the shared excel at same time, the file will be locked, the only thing you can do at this situation is to wait until the other person saves Or wait for some times the issue will be solved.

Share workbook Option is available in Review Tab.
