You cannot open xxxxx for output access...

The whole message is: ERROR: You cannot open xxxxx for update access with member-level control because xxxxx is in use by you in resource environment DMS Process

What causes this and how can I fix it? I seem to get it at odd times. Usually I'm using a macro procedure to read a list of SAS members and performing some logic on each one. I can run my macro successfully for awhile and then I start getting this message.
