Application offline with excel file in onedrive / dropbox is it possible?

I made an application that when browsing the sharepoint list, the online and offline mode works everything ok


But if you change the data source, by an excel file (.xlsx) inside the ondrive or dropbox, it works only online.


	SaveData(LocalDescriptioProduct; "LDP");;
	SaveData(LocalProductsAll; "LPA");

Same code, connecting in the same tables with the same structure, but Collections are created without the data.


Is it possible to use spreadsheets to create offline applications?

Someone answering me?


The same application, the same data structure, and so on. No sharepoint works offline read-only data. When the font changes to excel file it does not work.

No, it is not possible to use spreadsheets to save offline data, because you can't get to DropBox/OneDrive etc when offline.

@AndyPennell thanks for the answer.


But I believe I was not understood, I do not want to save data offline in a worksheet.


What I asked, is it possible when I have datasource as spreadsheet, make that application work offline?


Because the application works with spreadsheets and sharepoint list online, but only with sharepoint lists can put inside collection and save, so you can use this data when you are offline.


Only works offline when the data source is the sharepoint list. When I change to excel spreadsheets, the data is not written to the collections.
