Start Dropbox with Excel VBA

Start Dropbox with Excel VBA

Hi Everyone

I have branches that save Excel documents to Dropbox using VBA code but the documents don't always sink as Dropbox is closed on their PC for some reason. Is there any code that I can insert into VBA to check if Dropbox is running and if not for VBA to start the Dropbox desktop app?

Many thanks

Dropbox doesn't offer an official API for checking if the Dropbox desktop app is running, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. 

You may be able to write some code to natively check if the Dropbox process is running, and start it if not, but that wouldn't be officially supported by Dropbox, so I'm afraid I can't offer help with that.

Who's talking
