Our team works on many projects. Each project has a main document (in Excel) that we use to manage all of the work for that project.

Surely, this is a work file, but is it also more specifically a workfile?

  • Being a software developer, I have seen (and used) work file, work-file, and workfile in my time. It is really a matter of style. Choose which you like best, or consult an appropriate style guide if you are writing professionally. – Mick Dec 6 '16 at 20:03

Since you mention Excel specifically, which is a Microsoft product, the correct usage per Microsoft Word would be 'work file'. Better yet, call them 'Project Files'.
