Hi Experts,

I have a need to design an application which many users will use AT THE SAME TIME- TO QUERY , UPDATE DATA etc..

The question is that: IF MANY USERS ARE DOING UPDATES ETC AT THE SAME TIME, THEN IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO SO IN EXCEL?

I think that it is not possible but still I think I will check with experts first..

Is it possible with Access?

With thanks,
Nirav.

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

You can have people updating the same the spreadsheet at once by sharing the workbook. You just have to be sure that no-one is going to overwrite data that someone else has entered (although the user will be warned if they enter data in a cell where someone else has saved something).

Go to Tools=>Share Workbook and then save it.
