If you are using Excel 2003, go to the tools menu and choose share workbook. Set it so that users get exclusive use of the workbook. Others wont be able to use it until the changes have been saved and the person who has exclusive use closes it. If you allow lots of people use of the workbook at the same time and they are all trying to save you risk a corruption of the spreadsheet. It is obviously important to you as so many people use it.

I cannot open .docx and xlsx files.

The files extensions you have listed, .docx and .xlsx, are files that have been created using the Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 suite of programs. Specifically .docx is a Microsoft Word document, and .xlsx is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. You will have to have either of the Microsoft Office programs mentioned, or you can also use the Open Office suite of programs. This is a free program that you can download at the following website:

Microsoft Excel files: File size becomes very big while saving.

Whenever Excel closes unexpectedly, "ghost users" can remain in a "shared" workbook. Excel tracks changes in order to synchronize between users, resulting in huge file sizes.

If so, remove them by clicking "Remove User." When you save again, the file should be back to normal. Being this is a Microsoft product, I want to re-emphasize the word "should" from my previous sentence...

Problem Microsoft Excel 2007

There is a get external data function that you can backend the Excel to various sources via ODBC etc and it would be refreshed based on the updates to those sources, and then once it is linked properly, it will auto refresh. When you define the ODBC point to the file on the network and that would be the way to refresh to that. If the Excel is on the network, it can be shared.
