PyCharm won't save a file

 I have a file that Pycharm doesn't want to save.  I think it get locked by another Pycharm related program, but I don't think its the debugger.

The error message is as follows:

Cannot save C:\Users\<...>\Projects\Estimation Macros\
The file was renamed to BuildCMR.py___jb_old___.
Your changes were written to BuildCMR.py___jb_tmp___.


Its a window box so I restarted it. It fixed it until I ran it main again (Ctrl-F9) which calls this module.

What am I doing wrong??


Thanks in advance for your help

I figured it out.  Somehow WinWord open the file ( but didn't completely shut down.  I went to the task manager and killed it there and all is good.
