    At work I have got a directory with some excel files that I would like to be able to share with some work collegues.

    Problem is that I can't seem to be able to as there is no sharing tab. There is a security tab though. Is there any way that I can share a directory without using that tab.

    I did try to disable simple file sharing without much luck.

    It may be that file and printer and sharing is not installed :)

    You can check if it is on the properties windows of the network connection.

    Just another thought. We have got a number of shares on the servers. Would it be possible to put a directory on that and restrict who can read it. I don't want any tom dick or harry looking at them.
