I have a database that I send to an excel sheet that auto populates some field in a report with calculations that I need. There are several users and the excel sheet cannot be open at multiple times which has become an issue, after the data is submitted in the database the excel doesn't come up which the users need to print out every time. My question is, how can I make the excel read only so that they can just print and save the document while multiple users being in the excel since it is read only. The problem with this has become the fact that access sees the file as already open and doesn't write the data. Is there a solution without me making a report in access.
