Hi folks,

 

I am having this issue wherein this error pops up.

Have tried various google solutions- nothing seems to work.

How can i make this file behave normally with auto-save turned off. All my other files have auto-save turned On by default. But whenever i open this- it says workbook features prevent it from auto-save.

Please help

That could be Power Pivot or other add-in opened, they do not allow co-authoring, or like.
