When I open a Microsoft Excel file on my computer, a new version is instantly created in the version history in Dropbox online (though the "Date modified" listed in my file explorer is not updated) even when I don't save any changes to the file. At first I thought this was connected to the AutoSave function in Microsoft Office, but I have turned that off and the issue is still occurring. Does it have to do with using different versions of Excel? I'm running Office 2013 and some of the files were created in earlier versions. Having a bunch of extra versions with no actual changes cluttering up the version history makes it difficult/ annoying to keep track of who is working on vs. just viewing a file that more than one person needs to access.
