trouble with opening/editing excel files

Specs: Macintosh
when opening file, I get error message that the file is "being modified by another user." I am the only user. What does this mean and how to fix? Thanks.

Look in the folder where the file is stored. If there are any tmp files in the folder, delete them.

It's possible that there is a tmp file associated with the file you are trying to open that was not deleted the last time the file was closed.

If that doesn't help, open the file, save it under another name and then delete the original one. You might want to make a back up copy and save it someplace else first just to be safe.

Perchance, does the file name have a Slash Character in it,
something like "A/R File.xlsx"?
