I am using Dropbox in my home, while my most of the time I'm editing an Excel file, and save it into Dropbox folder.
Nowadays, I started a new work, while I cannot install the Dropbox application, due to internal regulations.
How can I edit an Excel file, on Excel application, without downloading Dropbox application, easily?
The best is to have a download link, so once I click this link, it will open the file in Excel application (neither Sheets nor Excel in the Web), I'll edit my Excel file, and once I click save -> it will save the file in Dropbox web.
Is that possible?
If not, what are my other alternatives? (Beside downloading the file, edit, and upload the file, which is time consuming processes...)
Thanks for your comment. I would prefer to edit my workbook locally (I don't like the Excel web integration, but maybe it's only me 🙂
Is there any way to save the local Excel workbook via a link or a cloud-path, so it will save the file into my directory? (For example, I can save my file into OneDrive, via the save as text box). is that exists for Dropbox as well?
Thanks for your greetings!
Another issue pops up: In one PC, I have the ability to open the file in Excel for the web, Google Sheets and Excel application as well. On another PC, I can see only two options: Google Sheets & Excel for the web. Why I can't find the Excel application in that PC?
Dropbox app is not installed in that machine (due to IT regulations. That's the reason I'm looking for alternatives to save excel files easily).
I'm using Chrome.
