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.

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.

You are legend very short effective and helpful it works for me thanks a lot
