When you link Excel to Word, the Word process will open the excel sheet.  If you then try and save the sheet, Word is still running, so therefore Windows will report back that the file is open by another user... you.  What it should say is that is open by another process....  try and close Word first, or don't link when the file is open by you in Excel.

Cheers,
CJ.

CJ is right.  Linking stuff before you save it causes issues.  Once the item is linked you should close the other application and save it.
