If your project includes one or more Excel books (no matter internal or external), you may encounter a saving problem with error message similar to the following:
failed due to an external Excel book saving failure. You will need to resolve that first and then try saving the Origin project again.
If that doesn't resolve the issue or if your Excel book is saved externally, try setting @SXA = 1:
@SXA = 1
For more information on changing the value of a system variable, see this FAQ
Beginning with Origin 2022, @SXA = 1, by default.
