Hi All,

I need your help.

I have a customer that uses Excel 2013. I have a few reports from different users, that their excel files, when they open it, has restored to a previous version. Maybe yesterday to last week. Different files, different PCs/laptops.

The files are located on a File Server running Windows Server 2012 R2.

All PCs are Windows 7 SP1 64 bit and Office is Standard 2013 32 bit.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Given it is a shared location my first thought is that other people are using the same report and then saving over the original. Would check time stamps to confirm this.

Other than that I would suspect that issue is related to the file server rather than excel
