Microsoft Excel in Dropbox Paper

New member | Level 2

Is there a way to work with Excel files in Dropbox Paper?  We need to collaborate on a file but I can't adjust it in Dropbox Paper so that we can see the full spreadsheet?

Re: Microsoft Excel in Dropbox Paper

Hi there @Jbab
You can check out more info on how to insert a table into a Paper doc here. You can also copy-paste Excel docs into a Paper doc, but changes you apply to it won’t be reflected to the original Excel doc.
However, if you’re trying to extend the width of the table, you can do so by:
  1. Clicking on the table in your Paper doc. 
  2. Selecting the button that looks like two arrows pointing at opposite ends [↔] which should appear on the top right hand side of your table. 
If I’ve misunderstood what you’re trying to accomplish, please don’t hesitate to get back to me with any additional info. Thanks in advance!
