    Usually the reason is the file being open in some program, Excel in this case. Try closing it first, or restart the device. You can also try copying/renaming the file.
    If this is a new file that you're trying to upload to some SPO library, there might be some restrictions in place preventing you from doing so, missing required metadata, etc.

    @Ali Taqvi

    Does the OneDrive toolbar icon shows Sync pending?
    If yes, please delete your Office Document Cache to have a check.

    If this issue only occurs with this specific Excel workbook or a specific folder, please try following steps.

    • Go to OneDrive folder > Select View tab > Click the drop down for Options and select "Change folder and search options" > Select View tab > Mark the "Show hidden files, folders, or drives" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" from the Advanced settings menu > Click OK. Then check whether there is any temporary files related to this Excel workbook or any hidden files in this folder.
    • Go to OneDrive settings interface, untick the box of "Save space and download files as you use them".
    • Move this file or this folder to other location, then paste back to OneDrive folder.
    • Create a new folder, then move this file or this folder into it for a test.
