Possible Issues 

There's two possibilities why you may have issues trying to save spreadsheets:

  • If you are not logged into an Google account then you won't be able to make a copy of a spreadsheet. Login or create a Gmail account (a Gmail account means the same thing as a Google account). 
  • If you still can't make a copy, then contact me as it's possible that the spreadsheet wasn't shared properly.
