As you are working on a workbook in a collaborative effort, it is entirely possible that more than one person will be working on a workbook at the same time. In this instance, it is important to remember to refresh your discussions periodically.
When discussion comments are posted for a workbook, they are not saved in the workbook itself. Instead, they are saved in a database on the discussion server. As other people post comments, they may not appear on your screen right away. To ensure that you have the most up-to-date version of the discussion possible, all you need to do is click on the Discussions tool on the Discussions toolbar, and then choose Refresh Discussions from the resulting menu. The discussion server is queried, and your display is updated.
