Excel in Onedrive, can't write file to souce

Hello, 

I've an issue with an excel table that powerapps still insist it's locked. So far I've been trying troubleshooting by;

 

1. Format table

2. Ensure there are no formulas and all data is raw

3. Check that table or so is NOT protected

4. right-click file and check if its writeprotected and it is not

 

I am running out of options, with what might be faulty. So I need second opinion from someone else that can try reproduce error.

EDIT: Magically it started to work, after 4 hours of troubleshooting. I didn't do anything and then it just started to work. However that might be an issue, that files are said to be locked and after random hours it is not anymore.

I ran into the same issue this morning.

You or someone else has the excel file open in Excel, or another viewer.

Close it, and poof - problem solved.
