I don't know if Larry B is still having that issue, but I am. How can we get the sub-folders to display, i.e. expand the folder?

Help...what is the answer to the above question.  My entire business is based in Dropbox.  Perhaps I will have to change to another platform????

This is a hugely frustrating issue. If this past much longer, I will have to switch to another provider. Whole business is based upon saving to Dropbox subfolders.

The Dropbox folder on your computer is just a folder like any other. There's nothing special about it and any application should be able to access it. If the subfolders within it are not displaying in the Office apps, then that's something that you'd need to ask Microsoft.
