I updated both Word and Dropbox apps and the problem went away.

Re: trouble editing word documents with Dropbox App

Explorer | Level 4

I have been struggling with this problem since early 2018 where Word for iPad give me an error message in the middle of editing a document stored on Dropbox. "Can't upload - Something's wrong and your changes can't be uploaded."

 

The document is originally created on my Word for iPad. The latest occurence was a couple of day ago when I first created a copy of my document and the continued editing the copy. After a few edits the error appears. The walk-around is to save the document on iPad and edit it there and then later move it to dropbox. But that's not a long-term way to work, is it!

 

The environment I work with is:

iPad 4 running iOS 10.3.3 (which is the highest supported one)

Word for iPad - the free version which automatically is updated now on 2.11.1

Dropbox - the basic level also automatically updated and now on 86.2.2

 

If screenshots help let me know and I provide them and any other information needed.

I have the original document available and it has no secrets in it and I can gladly share it should that be required. The text is in Finnish so it may be hard to understand, but that is surely not the purpose.

Thank's for your suggestion. I had a look at it and find that my iPad 4 with iOS 10.3.3 is not supported on it (anymore).
