    @MathewKostak
    Very good point Matt. I will stick to the topic at hand.

    Anyone found a way to UNLOCK a file that someone else has LOCKED FOR EDITING?

    Greg Simonis commented  · 

    Just to be clear on this issue:
    - YOU CAN edit an Excel file in either the browser or in Excel, if you are the ONLY one editing the Excel file.
    - If two people want to edit the file at the same time, AND one person opens it in Excel, the 2nd person CANNOT edit the file in the browser. * The ONLY way this can be done is by both people editing the file in the browser *
    - This IS NOT an issue for a Word file. Two people can edit a Word file at the same time, with one person editing it in the browser AND the other person editing it in Word.

    New 2016 version allows you to edit in excel AND in the browser - Is this for online AND on premise? Or just on premise? We are using 365 ProPlus online version and that statement is not true for us.

    That statement is true ONLY if they are editing the Excel file in the browser. As soon as a User opens it in the Excel application, that file is now locked for editing by that one User and all others get a read only version.
