Something peculiar is happening with OneDrive.

Let me set the scene. I am working with a laptop and a desktop machine, and I log onto both with the same Microsoft Account ????@outlook.com.  When I'm on-line OneDrive seems to sync perfectly. However I recent discovered a peculiar issue.

Using my laptop (desktop machine was switched off), I created a spreadsheet, i was on-line any it synced to OneDrive.

I took my laptop out on my travels. I decided to update the spreadsheet, I got a warning saying I was working offline  - to be expected as I was not connected to the internet.  

I made some changes to the spreadsheet and when I saved it I was warned that they file could not by synced, but it would be synced when I was next on-line - exactly what I wanted.

On getting home I switched my laptop back on and got a message saying that the pending files would be uploaded - which it then proceeded to so without intervention, great - or so I thought...

When I opened the spreadsheet I got the old version without the updates despite. No errors were recorded and the Microsoft Upload center showed a successful upload. The revised version was gone.... or so I thought.

On switching on my desktop machine and loading the spreadsheet I got the updated version ...

WTF is going on.   BTW with id Office 2016 on Windows 10.

I never did find the cause but DISABLING the sync office files with Microsoft Office option seems to have cured the problem - bizzare !
