Problem sharing a report

Hi there,

I have a report which i want to share with someone.

I needs to be shared in a way so that if someone makes some changes to the report, those changes need to be visisble by another user with the same report in a seperate folder. How do i achieve this?

I've tried to use the distribution option on the report athough i don't know if this is the option i need. If so, it says that i cannot share the report because the user, which i want to share the report with, has insuffici�nt rights and therefore cannot receive the report.

How can i achieve this? So far i've copied the report to the user's folder, but that's just a short term solution.

Thank you in advance.
