Keep Excel file path the same

Keep Excel file path the same

Go to solution

I have a Basic, Dropbox plan (files stored locally on my Apple Icloud account), and I am upgrading to a different account, with the files stored on line (Plus account).

 

I have hundreds of excel files that are linked into various master files, and am looking for suggestions as to how to make the transition easy, without having to open each excel file and change the paths.

 

Thanks

Hi @rdt17, thanks for your message.

 

In general, the iCloud and Dropbox systems are different, so it wouldn't be possible to have the folder locations remain in the same area to keep the filepaths the same.

 

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.
