    excel 2013 problem on win8


    Good times of the day ,
    I have excel 2013 installed on win8 and i have several excel files on the internet that i try to open simultaneously and here is the problem: sometimes when one file is open and i try to open another it doesn't open until I close the first one. Does anyone have a clue or is this not a proper forum for office 2013?

    You storing the files on Skydrive? That may be how it works, copy all of the files you need to work with locally, then you'll be able to open them all at once. I think Ofice 2013 gives you one file from a cloud service at a time, thats how most of them work.

    the files are in our remote server and the are opened by different people. In most cases we are able to open 3 or more files at once but sometimes the problem happens that no more than one opens so I close the file and open another and all the others needed and it works fine.
