Chapter 11: Controlling Workbook Distribution
To see what it looks like for a viewer of the workbook who doesn’t have authoring permissions, you
have to switch to a different user. For now, follow these steps to see what it takes to approve a
workbook, which you are able to do because you are the creator of the document library:
Drop down the menu on the name of the workbook you saved to the document library, as
shown in Figure 11-6.
Select Approve/Reject from the drop-down menu. The screen shown in Figure 11-7 is
For the Approval Status, select the Approved option.
Enter a comment in the Comment section.
Click the OK button at the bottom of the screen. Now, anyone with viewing permissions can
see the workbook.
You can use the Version History option for the workbook file to see who approved a workbook, when it
was approved, and any comments entered. You use this option later in the “Using Check-In,
CheckOut, and Versioning” section, later in this chapter.
