When opening an Excel file using the drive app I am getting an out of date version, have tried renaming the file, making offline, opening it using the Excel app but it seem's to want to open the old cached version.

Have tried deleting the cache.

Hi Andi Harris,
 
Welcome to the Google Drive community, just a few questions so I can understand what's going on;
  • How was this Excel file created?
  • Do you have the Microsoft Excel app installed (if so please remove this and try again)
  • Have you tried to clear the cache of the Drive app? (Settings>Application>Drive>Clear cache)
  • What type of excel file is this (XLS, XLSX etc)
I have just tried to replicate this by adding a test file to my Drive (created by Microsoft Excel) then editing it both through Google Drive and by editing in Excel and re-uploading a version. Both of these times It appeared in my Drive app on my android phone, the second time it did not appear straight away I had to use the "pull down to refresh" and a Modified version was listed.
 
Can you completely delete the file from Google Drive, by saving a copy to your local device and re-upload it, does this change anything?
 
Kind Regards,
Conner
