 Unlock Read-only locked for editing file

I have a message that says the excel file that I want to
open is "locked for editing." I did this inadvertently and
don't know how to unlock.  Can someone tell me?

Thanks,

Barbara

Try cleaning your windows temp folder (but not when you're
installing/deinstalling any software).

And you may have to reboot.  (Sometimes you can do alt-ctrl-delete and see a
hidden process of excel still running that's locking the file.  I can see this
stuff in winNT, not win98, though.)
