You can post It on YouTube then copy the link here. For how long has this been happening? Besides coughing have you noticed any other effects? I can’t help much but hopefully you can some more answers here. @Isaac 0
She seems perfectly happy and healthy besides the fought sneeze thing. YouTube doesn’t work for my phone because YouTube won’t update for my phone so it doesn’t let me use it.

Coughing/Sneezing can indicate a wide variety of problems, but lack of water promoting debris accumulation in the nares is a common cause. Does the duck have access to deep bathing water it can clean it's nares out with?

Plenty. They can lay down in it and clean the nose. I clean it out every motoring and add fresh clean wayet

Crumble feed is often a predisposing factor for a duck to develop sneezing and coughing. If you switch over to pellets, which overall contains less powder, you'll likely see an end to the coughing.
Oh ok. But... one problem.
She refuses to eat pellets. I’ve tried. She starved herself and so do the chickens and other ducks! They refuse to eat pellets.
