Hi, I'm not entirely sure what is going on, but it looks like there might be spaces in the URL which are confusing the Excel URL parser. Did you copy this URL directly from Dropbox?

Hi @Mashrab, what version of Excel are you running?

This is most likely an issue similar to this thread where Excel can't open certain links.

Assuming the link opens normally in a browser, then the issue would lie with Excel itself.

Keep me updated with any details!
