Error Saving Excel File

Having an issue with Excel 2013 on Windows 7. The Error message:
Errors were detected while saving '[path\Filename]'. Microsoft Excel may be able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in a new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

If I click continue, it asks me to re-save the file with the same error and the fine is not saved.

Tried many forums on Google without any success:

  • Repair Microsoft Office 2013
  • Copy the sheets to a new workbook
  • Deleted sheets with multiple linked sheets
  • Allow the file path in Windows Defender
  • Change all font to automatic, cells to no fill
  • Remove all graphs and images
  • Tried saving to a new location

Thank you very much!

Does this issue happen when you try to share the Excel workbook under Review tab or when you try to save an Excel workbook or maybe you have any images inserted in the Excel workbook? If so, please try to remove the images and then check if this issue continues.

There are no images in the excel sheet. This is directly related to saving the file.

If the filename and path are over 260 characters that will cause that.  As will using some characters.

There are links to other excel workbooks. Nothing that's out of the ordinary that you can't link in an excel workbook.

The file was originally saved to a network drive, was then moved to Box and now we cannot save it in any of these location including locally on the machine.
Tried saving on a USB key - same result.

Copy/paste the cells, sheet by sheet, into a new workbook. And then save the new file.
