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.

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
