Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
When you share a workbook in Microsoft Excel, multiple users can simultaneously make changes to the workbook. When you save a workbook that is shared, the Resolve Conflicts dialog box will appear if two or more users have typed different values into a cell in a worksheet in the workbook. You can use the Resolve Conflicts dialog box to determine what value is retained by the cell.
When the Resolve Conflicts dialog box appears, if the worksheet where a conflict occurs is hidden, the worksheet will be unhidden, no matter what button you click (Accept All Mine, Accept All Others, Accept Mine, Accept Other, or Cancel).
