    Its not the issue with excel file.

    Please follow the steps:

    To change the quota template for a site collection by using Central Administration
    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:

    You must be a member of the Farm Administrators group.

    On the Central Administration home page, click Application Management.

    On the Application Management page, in the Site Collections section, click Configure quotas and locks.

    On the Site Collection Quotas and Locks page, ensure that the correct site collection is displayed. If you want to change the site collection, expand the Site Collection list, and then click Change Site Collection. Use the Select Site Collection page to select a site collection.

    In the Site Quota Information section, expand the Current quota template list, and then select the new quota template to apply.

    Click OK.

    Assisted Solution

    Server administrators are able to set limits on the amount of storage space that sites can use on the server. Contact your server administrator to request that the storage quota for the Web site be increased.

    Open Central Administration > Application Management
    Under "Site Collections" > specify Quota Templates
    In the Storage Limit Value > set the Data Limit you want
    Click > OK
