    Unable to save excel worksheets or move /copy files


    I am running Win 10 v 1803 64 bit. All of a sudden, my excel files are coming up read only and I cannot save the changes I make. System won't allow me to move files saying I don't have permission. What?
    Will appreciate anyone's help on getting this cleaned up. Thanks.

    Excel Worksheet in Drive G


    If you saved the worksheet on C drive in Excel, that's where it will look for it. If you moved it to drive G (even by accident), Excel is still looking for it at the last known location where you saved it. If you open Excel and navigate to the location on the G drive where you know it is, then open it, and "save as" to the original location on the C drive, Excel will know where it is, and you will be able to open it next time from within the Excel program.

    Excel Worksheet in Drive G


    I did something to make a worksheet that I had prepared in Excel to go to my external drive G. Now each time I need to get the worksheet for some reason it tells me that it is not there, but I can see it in the external drive. I want to it on drive C.
    Suggestions?

    Excel worksheets: I cant cut, paste, save or delete. Windows 10

    When I try any of these functions, an error message shows up: "Excell cant complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications"

    I want to delete data but the system does not allow me to do it.

    Please advise! Thank you.
