Hi All, i would like to check how to activate the Autocomplete function when typing words in the Dropbox Excel. I used to have it when i typing a silmilar word. It will fill up the rest of the information for me. Could anyone advise me? Thanks.

For the online version, there isn't an option for Autocomplete, as this is a feature on the local version of the Excel app, since the autocomplete options are stored in a separate file in Excel itself.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!

Hi @CandiB, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Just to clarify, are you using the Excel for the web app via the Dropbox site, or are you editing it on a mobile app or desktop app?

 

Keep me posted!
