When I attempt to open a word document from the Dropbox App on iPad I receive an error message saying “Cannot Find File. The location changed since you last opened the file. “ (see below)
Secondly, I am now unable to save a new word document to the Dropbox. I receive an error message saying “Cannot connect to server. The server may be unavailable. Check your internet connection and try again.” (See below)
This is a new issue and in the past I have had no problems accessing Dropbox from Word or opening Word documents from Dropbox.
I have verified that Dropbox has been added as a service in Microsoft word and all office apps automatically allow access to third party storage. The internet connection has been checked and works perfectly.
I am able to open documents from OneDrive in word and save new word documents to OneDrive without a problem. On this basis I don’t think there is anything wrong with the Word App.
My Dropbox files won’t load on my ipad’s Microsoft Word app and a notification come up saying something about the server and internet connection. I have the Dropbox app on my iPad and that syncs my file fine with my computer and I can view all files, however I can’t open them in Microsoft Word on my iPad. I managed to open them in Read-only but as soon as I tried to edit, it said the same thing about the server and internet connection.
This never used to be an issue so not sure what has changed and why it no longer lets me use the files.
