Copied Excel File with Web Hyperlinks into Dropbox - Hyperlinks Don't Function

I'm wondering why Web hyperlinks in an Excel spreadsheet won't open once I copy the document into Dropbox? They are working fine in the document on my computer. Thank you.

Hey there @cosav

In general, when you create links in a workbook to another workbook or a file on your computer using a formula that relates to an external location, that link points to a location on your own hard drive. 

If that workbook is downloaded to another computer, the locations of where that formula points to are no longer there. 

You can find more info in @Walter's post in this thread

If I've misunderstood your concern or what you're trying to achieve, please don't hesitate to get back to me. Thanks!
