You didn't mention whether you were using Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 or 2016 for Mac OS X so I've guessed that you are using Essential Skills 2016 (though the lesson is almost identical in earlier versions).
You can read this lesson (as e-book pages) here:
You can also see a video walkthrough of the same lesson (recorded with Excel 2013) here:
The first thing to check is that you successfully completed Step 4 (Create an Excel subfolder beneath your Documents folder). I'm almost certain that this will be the problem. Make sure that you haven't accidentally placed a leading or training space before or after the word "Excel".
If that isn't the problem then the problem may be related to windows security issues (if the new subfolder has been created with rights that prevent you from accessing it). This is quite unlikely but if you suspect that this may have happened try deleting the Excel subfolder and then creating it again. This will probably solve the problem.
