Tracking Changes

  • Hi All


    Anyone had any problems / issues when using Tools > Track Changes.


    I'm about to use it on some large workbooks and I don't want their file sizes to blow out.


    I'm using XL2000 and likely to change to XP soon.


    TIA

  • Never tried it personally but how about using a copy of your w/b to test it out?

  • Thanks for your reply.


    I will be testing, but I just wondered if others had already done some work on it.


    Thanks again

  • You've probably done this already (don't want to patronise 'n' all) but check out the xl help on 'About tracking changes'


    Things like how long you want to keep a history for will probably impact on your file size etc

  • Yes have looked at xlhelp.


    Unfortunately xlhelp doesn't always tell you the downside of excel's features - and it rarely quantifies them.
