yesterday we transferred our files from Dropbox to Teams/OneDrive while opening some excel files, the message appeared and after two hours it solved automatically! but now I have the same issue with different files in a different path!

and it's hard for me to change the path of files/folders. any proper solution for this, please!

There are 2 things that could be happening here:-

 

1. The file path is too long - there was a recent updated but it is still restricted to 260 characters. (Most Likely). This is a hard limit and you will have to re-organise the file structure.  No way around it. 

2. There are linked excel files within the file you are trying to open that need relinking or removing.

@Andrew Hodges 

I have changed some paths it's worked,

I want to reduce the number of characters (folders name/path), as by deleting the duplicated name of the channels and folders in OneDrive/Teams, is there any way to avoid duplicate name?

FYI I fixed subject message by going:  Options, addins, Manage Excel addins, Go, Uncheck the offending entity, Ok, Ok, etc.

 

Exit Excel, go back in, issue resolved.
