Hi, I'm having trouble opening a file in excel online. When attempting to open the document, I receive a notice that says that the file is currently open in google sheets so I can only view in excel online - not edit.
The file is actually not open in google sheets, I mistakenly clicked sheets instead of excel when trying to open and immediately closed the tab. The file is not shared with anyone. It would appear that dropbox still believes the file is open and being worked on in sheets when it is not.
Does anyone know a workaround for this glitch to help me open the document and edit in excel online?
When trying to open a file in excel file on Microsoft Excel For Web I am receiving this error:
"Want to see the latest version and edit?
Right now people are working on this file in Google Sheets. You can see updates and edit there."
However, none of the people in my shared folder are using Google Sheets, we all use the Excel for Web version. Any ideas on how to bypass this and edit on the excel version? When I can get past this screen to the excel version, it is in view only mode and says the file is locked... but it's my file and I nor anyone else has locked it?
