After saving the workbook to OneDrive/SkyDrive, you have many options for controlling access to the file. These options require more exploration on your part, but briefly:

  • Use Inspect Workbook to hide personal or confidential information you might not want to share and to check for other troublesome issues, such as accessibility and compatibility with other versions.
  • Use Versions to recover unsaved changes.
  • Use Browser View Options to limit the areas of the file other users can view.

Here you can find a number of file options. Use these options on the left to manage the file.

With Invite People selected, enter the email addresses of those contacts you want to share the workbook with. If you're sending the invitation to multiple contacts, type a semi-colon character between names.

Note: As you type the address, Excel uses AutoComplete to match your input with names and addresses in your Address Book. Plus, you can click the Search The Address Book For Contacts icon to search for contacts.
