can't overwrite table or query

I have database with 1 table-
When I am trying to import an excel sheet with new data -I recieve error 'can't overwrite table or query'.
can my problem be with database or the data I am trying to import in?
I follow this same process on a number of small databases I have weekly and daily- I do not understand why I am getting this error.
thank you

Is the table a regular access table? Linked?

I just realized my start up form is open and is connected to the table in a way that if open is causing error.
