PowerPivot - "errors were detected while saving" - unable to save RRS feed

  • Question

  • Working in PowerPivot 2012, 32-bit version. Have been using and updating the same file for about a year now, but we've started to get the error below, almost always after refreshing pivot tables after a data update. Any changes are unable to be saved, even after Excel proposes saving a repaired version of the file with a different name.

    This file is stored on a shared drive, and we are able to save after other changes (formatting, etc).

    Any ideas what could be causing this? I've seen some other posts regarding this error, but none specific to PowerPivot, and those solutions have not been applicable.

    Ah - the image of the error did not upload. When it reoccurs, I will post it.

    The error says something like "Errors were detected while saving <file name>. Excel may be able to repair the file by saving the file with a new name."
