Re: dropbox excel files won't load


Hello @cdaugherty - welcome to our Community!

Am I correct to assume that you're using our website through a web browser when you're noticing this?

If that's indeed the case, could you clear your browser's cache, try an incognito window or even a completely different browser and let me know if you get the same result?

In case you do, please send me a screenshot in your next response so I can investigate further.

Thanking you in advance!
