I cannot save my excel spreadsheet because this message comes up every time. I have tried a different name for the workbook several times but I always get the message. I have tried Excel Help but the search for this error message produced nothing. Any suggestions please? Thanks

    Have you tried to save the same file to a different/ alternate drive. What version of office you have! You can navigate here to overcome this issue:

    I have not encountered this problem yet with Excel but I did a bit of poking around. Here are the fixes that other users have reported.

    1. Make sure you are running the current version of Excel. That seems to have fixed things for some users. 
    2. Repair permissions on the drive using Disk Utility.
    3. Choose Save As and save the file. Some users have also suggested that with this method you must also choose a different file format such as Excel '97. This can cause some loss of formatting etc. if you have used a feature not present in the older file formats.
    If at you it didn't turn out to solve a problem, it is possible to try to solve it otherwise, for example as it is described here: https://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/itanswers/excel-2003-docs-now-wont-open-in-excel-2007/
