  • Question

  • Where is a good place to find out how to use Share Point in a very basic way. All I need to do is have a few Excel sheets be available for a few people to modify and appear on a large monitor in the office (the monitor has a computer). Thank you.

  • Hi Type Rogers,

    Using Excel Services in SharePoint, we can only display the workbooks in the browser. But the workbooks cannot be edited in the browser by using Excel Services.

    If we want to edit the workbooks in the browser, we need to install Office Web Apps in SharePoint. Microsoft Office Web Apps is the online companion to Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote applications that enables users to access documents from anywhere.

    Information about Office Web Apps, you could refer to the following article:

  • Hi,

    if your need is to have excel sheets shared among your team, you can use excel services in your SharePoint server.

    if you have your SharePoint is installed on-premise, make sure that excel services are configured properly through the SharePoint administration.

    If you are using SharePoint online or office 365, it will be easy for you to create and share your sheets easily among your team.


    Thanks, Mahmoud
