Hello @Trish S.2, I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with this!

Can you clarify for me exactly what issue they're having when they try to edit the file?

If they're getting any error messages, please send me a screenshot as the visual is always helpful.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

User could open in Web for either xls or .docs

But not Google to edit

DO I understand correctly that no user can edit in Google ... unless their DB id uses a google email?

Thanks for getting back to me here @Trish S.2!

If they want to use the online Google apps to edit files, they would need to connect their Google account first.

This would need to indeed be the same email as the one on the Dropbox account.

If they have a Google account, they can try changing the email linked with their Dropbox account to that email address with these steps.

Otherwise, they should be able to use the Microsoft apps instead to edit the files.
