But perhaps more importantly, the View of the worksheet you’re seeing here is read-only . Neither
you, nor anyone to whom you’ve granted access to the workbook, can enter data in this mode. To go

Now that’s more like it—sort of. The interface greeting you in Edit in Browser resembles the Excel

saved to the Public folder are available to everyone, but in read-only mode.)
