made a master file which I 'save as' daily and make a daily report, whenever I open this file it takes a lot of memory and works very slowly, as more as I type it become slower. While other files of Excel works normally.
Note: I used Vlook formula in column 'C'
Can you please check why it is so
file name new prod

I'm not able to see your file. Can you share it as public.
Alternatively, I think the issue could be because you may have entered the Vlookup formula in the entire column C, i.e. all the 65536 rows. That will take up a lot of space.
It is preferable to enter vlookup formula only in the required number of rows. At the most, you can enter the formula in a few hundred extra rows to accomodate for future data, but please do not enter it in the entire column C as that will make it a very large sized file.
