Re: Downloading question

Hi there, could you clarify exactly what error you’re getting?
Are you previewing the file on the Dropbox site, or opening it in Word directly?
Any info you can provide would be great!

You need to provide more information about the error before anyone will know how best to assist you.

What is the error message that you're receiving? Are you downloading the file to your computer or trying to open in through the Dropbox website? What is the file type (the file extension, TXT, DOCX, XLSX, etc.)?
