Would it be OK if I ask you to translate this please? grinning face with smiling eyes Can't find a way to copy it to translate it. Even if we continue via email, it is important to have the translation.  

Thank you so much for helping me with this @PavelIvanov

Thank you so much for translating.

The sharing violation message does not refer to Dropbox sharing. You can read about this in Microsoft forums. When saving a file, a sharing violation can be caused by the way an antivirus application interacts with Microsoft Office. I suggest to white list both Dropbox and Excel to any antivirus systems you are using. 

You can try pausing the antivirus and save the file again.

Let me know if this worked for you!

I deinstalled the antivirus program and still does not work for the large files. No problems with the small ones however.
