Thank you for your input on Excel’s filepath limit! We have included this feature as part of upcoming work.

I have a way to solve: I map my own C drive as a mapped drive, but lower in the folder hierarchy.
Map drive \\computername\c$\Users\Box_sync\Loooooooong_name so the path look smaller for excel.
