I am in charge of registration and as I mark person/people who checked in, I want four other laptops that are online with same OS and same Excel or Word (office 2007) loaded on page. I want all four computers to update reg. as I continually update 1st computer throughout the day. All laptops are same model and all have wireless cards. What should I do?

    This is just not a feature of Word or Excel.   Other computers can open a read only copy but they will not receive the updated date unless or until they close the document and reopen it.    Only the computer holdiing the document can update it.    The idea of trying to keep track of 1500 reservations on either of these types of products would be daunting.  This might be accomplished using MicroSoft Access, however, that takes a great deal more technical skill.
