Share Excel data with others by exporting it to a SharePoint site

Excel data in a SharePoint list

Excel data in a SharePoint list.

Why export Excel data to a SharePoint site instead of sharing data by using e-mail, or by putting data on a network folder somewhere? Your SharePoint site is a shared location on the Web, where those who have the permissions to do so can access data by using a Web browser.

In the picture is a SharePoint list (think of the list as a Web-based table). A group of employees have agreed to give lunch-hour training presentations. Richard has already given you the date and title for his presentation. Now you need everyone else on the list to do the same. Because this is a SharePoint list, each employee can add his or her data whenever it's convenient. There's no waiting while someone else works on the list.

If you are interested in learning more about SharePoint Products and Technologies, you'll find links about SharePoint Services 3.0 and SharePoint Server 2007 in the Quick Reference Card at the end of the course.
