Update xlsx file

Update xlsx file

I’m not sure how Dropbox syncs files. I edit the file on my PC and save it to a Dropbox folder that I think is on my PC. I was then thinking that the changes I made on the PC would be reflected on my iPad when I opened the file on my PC but I still see the original file before the changes. I would have thought these changes were reflected. Am I missing something? Thanks091DD78E-41B6-4189-B8E4-75B520BEF046.png

Hi @mlkpied, thanks for messaging today!

Could you try the option to reset the document history in the Microsoft app on the iPad?

It sounds like the app is holding a cached copy of the file.

Keep me updated with any progress!

Thanks for the response. I’m not sure I understand how to handle what you suggested about the cache. My workaround was to save the .xlsx file with a new name on my Windows PC which then appeared with the new name on my IPad and then renamed the two files in Dropbox.

Okay, as long as you're able to view the new file and edit, this is what matters!

Let me know if you need any further assistance in the future!
