Cross-Book updating?

Greetings all, I have one master excel spreadsheet that I am continually updating along with two other people. Our managers have wanted to pull data from that spreadsheet to view stats so I created a second book that uses macros to copy over the master to do all of the calculations quicker.

Now the managers are wanting to add a new column to where THEY can put information in and I'm wanting to keep the master separate from their copy of it. Has anyone ever dealt with a scenario similar to this and if so, how did you handle it?

I thought about just moving the master over, but then I'd have to track down the person who has it open each time my own team needs to make a change.

Thanks in advance!

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

What about Sharing the workbook?
Go to Tools | Share WorkBook....

Ok...well sure...I guess that feature could work as well...

Goes to show some things can be less complicated than they appear.

Thanks!
