    @Greg Simonis @Ryan
    That's not true if you have Office 365. I used to have the same problem as you Ryan.

    If you have Office 365, you can edit both online and desktop app at the same time with no interference. I usually have 4-5 ppl using at the same time online and it was hard to communicate with everyone to close the file so I can edit on my desktop. On Office 365, I don't care how many people are online using the file, I can always click "Open in Desktop App" and start editing things that I can't do online. If someone is editing online during that time, I can see it on my desktop app as well. My life is so much easier now :)

    I was using Office 2013 Excel before. I can't confirm for other versions but Office 365 is what you are all looking for.

    Good News!

    You can now edit the file in Office 365 on your desktop even other people are using the file with no interruption. I'm sure many of the people here are not aware of it. I just found out recently updating to 365. Hope this help!
