When saving an excel file to Sharepoint the column with a multiply formula shows #VALUE! - Error in Value A value used in the formula is of the wrong data type

That usually happens when you use texts instead of numbers in calculations. What do you see in formula bar if stay on any cell in column G?

And that is .xlsx file? Perhaps you may share the sample file with only one record?
