    File Locked for Editing (Excel 2000/ W98SE)

    No idea what caused appearance of the above box when I routinely accessed a workbook (spreadsheet). Not only the cause, but equally, no idea of the cure.
    Tried to rename file, but prevented from doing so by status "locked" Can view but cannot Save or do anything else. PLEASE HELP!

    Have you tried restarting your PC?

    If the file is on your local hard disk, then try rebooting the PC. If the file is on a server, then the server may need to be rebooted.
