    Excel workbook links keep failing when the worksheets resaved to Dropbox

    I have 3 workbooks that comprise a global report that is printed daily.

    The Global Report is a summary of the other workbooks. All the workbooks are saved on our dropbox.
    The links fail every time we open the Global Summary workbook and when we look at the cell we see that it is referencing a workbook based on the user.

    Here is what is in the cell:
    ='/Users/ajd/Dropbox (Darakjian)/#RMA/Accounting & Finance/[#0 RMA Cashflow Worksheet.xlsm]Global Cash'!S3

    How can I link worksheets that are saved to dropbox and not have links fail?

    Unless there's some way to map Dropbox as a lettered drive OR access files on Dropbox as if they were a local network server share like //Dropbox/SoMeThInG/Users/ajd/..., I figure you can't.

    In any case, I figure you'd be FAR BETTER OFF asking Dropbox how to do this. This is much more a network/internet configuration question than an Excel question.
