I have a .xlsx file that I read with xlsread. However, if I change the file and call it with xlsread again, it returns the old values. I've tried clear all, clear('myfile.xlsx'), pack, fclose all, but nothing seems to make the xlsread read the newly modified file, except for restarting matlab. How can I force it to read in the new file? And yes, I have saved the new file.(using 2015asp1)

Ah so...I've had some "issues" with Excel, too, so wouldn't surprise me. Perhaps there was another session that hadn't closed properly and was holding the file handle or the like...
