An online excel file shared via link cannot be edited without a dropbox account

An online excel file shared via link cannot be edited without a dropbox account

I've created an "Excel for the web" file and tried to share it with a link that says "Anyone with this link can edit the file".

In my understanding it should allow even people without a dropbox account or MS Office to edit it online (which is the case for similar OneDrive and Google Drive files), but the link is useless, it only shows what has been already created and doesn't allow editing.

Any idea how can I make it editable for ANYONE?

 

Thanks

I'm afraid you've misunderstood it - only people with a Dropbox account can edit it. 

 

If you need them to edit it, they need an account.
