Thanks for that clarification there, it seems that I didn’t fully understand there!
So, in this case I would recommend creating a shared link instead of adding the URL hyperlink into the Excel file. If those who are trying to access the file are not signed into a Dropbox account or don’t have the file actually shared with them, then a shared link will allow them view access to the files.
If you are using just the URL of the file as the hyperlink, since this is pointing towards a file within your account, the hyperlink can only be used to access the file when signed into your Dropbox account. Using shared links will eliminate this issue.
Let me know if this clears thing up a bit - Thanks!
