Excel Web Services Enhancements
Excel Web Services is expanded and enhanced in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. In SharePoint Server 2010, you can edit and save a workbook programmatically.

In this scenario, you can use code to edit a workbook at the same time that other users are co-authoring the workbook.
