Sharing a word doc

  • Can you share a word doc like you can an Excel spreadsheet on a network drive?

    You can share an Excel spreadsheet on a network and several people can update it at one time, without getting a read-only notification, all updates are updated when someone saves and the save only effect the modifed fields, so you won't be over writing someone elses update with blank cells. My question is can you share a word doc that has been setup with a table the same way?

  • slick255,

    Word was not intended as a shared medium like that.
    Specifically word will prevent you from updating a document that some one else has edited.

    There are some Microsoft Sharepoint services that may get around this, but I have no experience with them.
