excel issues with dropbox on ipad

New member | Level 2

have recently started getting issues with using excel on the ipad - which has made using excel on the ipad unusable - there’s no issue with onedrive but I dont want to use onedrive  - can’t work out if this is an microsoft issue or dropbox issue - noone else uses the dropbox account, I only use an ipad so there’s no files being used on another deviceB0E6C491-3AFD-4D91-A44C-60A42DDECC1A.jpeg

Re: excel issues with dropbox on ipad


Hi there @niallj

Let's see what we can find. 

The first thought that comes to mind is if the file is in a shared folder, could someone else be accessing it at the same time?

Could it be that you have it open in another device by any chance?

Any additional info would be very helpful. 

Thanks in advance!
