    Linked Documents or appending Docs in Sharepoint Solution Needed

    I have a central excel document used for contracting music shows stored in SharePoint that myself and 4 other people regular use, we are running into problems with several people wanting to use the document at the same time and getting a read only alert, thus delaying them
    Co-authoring on SharePoint online is possible, but itís too slow, has reduced functionality and loses formatting so isnít suitable.
    I am trying to think of ways to reduce the need for people to be in the contracting document at the same time, sometimes they will want to add a full new show (row) but other times they want to just check certain info
    All four people work remotely not on the same server
    I was wondering if it were possible to have separate linked documents on SharePoint that could be accessed locally? The master document would be used to add new shows, the other two documents would update from the master.
    Iíve attached an example if you assume each of the tabs are a separate stand-alone document
    Doc 1 (Full Contract) columns A Ė AM
    Doc 2 (Deal) contains columns A-G and H Ė R from Doc 1
    Doc 3 (Com) contains columns A-G and AJ Ė AM from Doc 1
    The above documents are hypothetical Ė if a solution is possible I could do with understanding the process so that I can apply it to the correct documents
    Alternatively could each person have their own full document which would update a master, someone previously has kindly created append documents using macros for me but I couldnít get them to work on SharePoint Ė they said the problem was to do with SharePoint permissions but I checked this several times with Microsoft who confirmed all permission were in place and that they felt the document were corrupt. I have also attached these documents
    I am open to any other suggestions of how to approach the problem if any has any suggestions

    Thanks in advance

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not crosspost your question on multiple forums without including links here to the other threads on other forums.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
