Unable to open from Dropbox Excel files more then 5MB

Unable to open from Dropbox Excel files more then 5MB

When I go to open an excel file from my Dropbox, I get a message about not being able to open my Excel file with Excel online, as it is >5mb. This is very limiting for any work.

Hi @Dragonmbnv, thanks for taking the time to message us!

The preview limit on the Dropbox site for Excel files should be 40 MB.

Are you instead trying to edit the file in the Office for the web app? This does come with a 5 MB limit.

Keep me updated with any details!
