Office 365 blocking ability to access One Drive

Or that's what I think the issue is. When using Excel I see this message. The file is stored on my OneDrive account.

Error message from Excel
When I try and log into 365 to satiate the nag screen with my Office 365 accouint, from which this version of Office Premium was downloaded and installed,  I get this message.

Error message when you legitimately log into 365...
I can access the OneDrive account perfectly otherwise.

What's the solution?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Ed,

Is your file located in OneDrive or OneDrive for Business? If it is located in OneDrive your are receiving this because that is a different account (personal). To resolve this move the file to OneDrive for Business, which will be in the same business account.

Also, if you open Excel and create a new file & save a new file do you receive the same message?

Let me know!

if you read carefully in that link, the answer is actually in another link.

for your reference it is here https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/11545/microsoft-account-rename-your-personal-account
just give yourself another live account (for example username.company@outlook.com) and reassign it as default, then delete your username@company.com domain)
