Upload existing Google Sheets from GDrive to Dropbox?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi All,

 

How can I upload existing Google Sheets from GDrive to Dropbox?

 

When I try to do this, the following Dropbox error message appears.

 

"Unable to upload My Test Worksheet.gsheet
This file is not supported by Dropbox and cannot be uploaded."

 

Thanks for your help.

Hello @gladd, I hope you're well today!

 

At the moment, it's not currently possible to move Google Docs, Sheets or Slide directly into Dropbox.

 

What I can suggest would be to either copy and paste the info from the existing Sheet into a new Sheet created in Dropbox, or to export the Sheet into another format to upload to Dropbox.

 

You can check out more info on this from here.

 

If you choose to export the file as an MS Excel file type, once uploaded to Dropbox you can then choose to open these files with Google Sheets with the steps outlined here.

 

Let me know if this helps!
