Unable to open files using Finder on an iMac

Helpful | Level 5

I can not open a file using Finder that I have previously had access to.  The file is available on dropbox.com and we have checked the permissions.

Hey there @bec3,
 
I’ll need a little more info to be able to understand the issue fully. For example, is it only one file that you can’t open or a specific type of file? Do you receive an error message when trying to open the file? If so, can you please send me a screenshot of this (excluding any personal info).
 
Also, can you let me know if you are able to open and see the file as expected on the web? When you mentioned you checked the permissions of the file, can you let me know how/where you checked this and what you found?
 
Looking forward to hearing back from you - Cheers!
