Windows 7: Excel ('13) - "Document not saved" error + performance issues

Excel ('13) - "Document not saved" error + performance issues


Issue is with an Excel document that runs a macro to report information from another data sheet:
Raw data - 3MB
Macro - 8MB
Result file - 120MB
When the macro is complete;
1. The document shows an error when trying to save (see screenshot with error) -- Black icons show within the save window (see screenshot).
2. Copying small amounts of information takes around a minute or longer.
3. Switching tabs sometimes does not change the information on the screen (current tab stays the same but the bottom button doesn't).

Tried the following:
Office 2013 St - downgraded to 2010 to test. No change.
Tested Excel doc on another laptop (identical spec) and saw no issues.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

My first wild guess -- are you running any combination of privacy and/or anti-ransom utilities? If not, disregard my post.

If the spreadsheet works on another computer, then it would seem that the problem is with your computer & not the spreadsheet.

Have you run all your anti virus & malware scans.

You System Specs are sadly lacking & having those filled in helps us with diagnosing your problem. This tutorial will help you fill them in.
