Task triggers when file closed but not saved
Feb 20th, 2017 at 1:48pm
I have a excel file that triggers a Task ( Event setting is "A File is Changed" only selected) when the file is opened and closed but not saved. The modification date/time has not changed either. It also works correctly when the file is saved. How can i stop the task triggering for just opening and closing a file.

I guess Excel is doing some modifications which trigger the task.

You are probably using the "Fast" monitoring method. This method receives notifications from Windows for file events "as they happen", even if the end-result of those events is "nothing has changed". Try one of the other monitoring methods, that should work better in your case.
