I tried to run
exec sp_lock but I do not have permission. There is not an office hour at the service provider.
Under what circumstances would it lock? Can you tell me what it mean? Is there something else that could be wrong?
This happened after i had been updating a lot of data to this table.

You can lock a table when you are updating it so that people cannot access partial or updating/changing rows. In SSMS run activity monitor by right-clicking on the SQL Instance:
Activity MonitorNext expand 'processes' and sort by 'Block By':
Blocked ByThis will tell you what is blocking your access to the table, you should be able to trace the process, Block By ID = 98 so go to process 98, process 98's block by ID is 41 so go to process 41, process 41 has no block by ID so right-click kill process and everyone should follow in order.
This method can have consequences, but if the table is artificially locked (no rows are actually changing) then you will probably be ok.

Thank you for your instructions. I tried this but I got the message that I did not have permission. There are many websites running on this server.
Can it be locked without me giving that order?
Is there some other explanation?

You will have to be able to kill a session ID. Example here on another way to get to it.
