Try creating a new XLS file, open them both (new and old),  copy-and-paste the entire contents of the "bad" file into the new one, and see if you can save the new file or if that triggers the ACCVIO error also.

Microsoft Excel has a file repair option that you can try.

Open up a blank Excel spreadsheet.
From menu, select File, and Open.
Browse to the file that you are having issues with and highlight it.
Next, to the right of the Open button is a drop down arrow.
Click that drop down arrow and select Open and Repair...
See if that fixes the problem.
In most cases, add-ins are the cause for start, saving or exiting crashes in Office programs.
I had the same problem. Try to disable all add-ins in Excel on a test computer (including
Microsoft add-ins). In my problem, it was the Microsoft's  - Euro Currency Excel Add-in.

Test a little if Excel crashes, after enable them one by one to find the causing Add-in.
