Letting the cat out of the bag

We have an Excel spreadsheet of member details, which I open twice a day or so to look up the login details of lusers who've accidentally put their membership card through the washing-machine.

All I do in the spreadsheet is look up their name. I change nothing, I touch nothing, yet when I close Excel it always asks me if I want to save my changes. This has been puzzling me for months, but today I twigged.

I am changing it by the mere action of looking at it. It is Schrödinger's spreadsheet.
