Does anyone know how I can report defects in the latest version of Excel for IOS (V1.9.3).  I've looked through the menu's for it and there seems to be no way of reporting defects that I can find (in the Outlook App there is a mechanism in the help menu, but Excel does not have a help menu).

Specifically it will not sync with OneDrive and only shows files that have long since been removed.   Attempting to remove these documents tapping the filename attempts to open the deleted document from OneDrive rather than bringing up the delete/remove menu).

As a follow-up on this the resolution was to stop using OneDrive and move to DropBox (actually I keep OneDrive for the desktop sync and my OneNote files).  While DropBox is a paid service, the performance is much faster and I am no longer having issues with it failing to sync files (such as Office 16 Preview documents). 

The only limitation I have found so far is that Office for Windows does not appear to support DropBox as a location, but I believe there is a work-around for that. Office for IOS does have this feature and it works for me quite well.

Another thing that I did was to move both DropBox and OneDrive download locations on my Surface Pro to my SD card.  I used the approach of using a VHD which I mount at boot time to provide a drive location. Still testing this technique out, but for the moment it seems to be working.
