Field calculator works in ArcMap, but not Pro. "Cannot acquire a lock"

I am working on a project where I have to switch between ArcMap and ArcPro because I only have a spatial analyst extension in Pro. I use the "Zonal Statistics as Table" tool in Pro. Then I would like to attach that table to another layer and calculate a field based on a field in the Zonal Statistics table.


However, when I try to do this in Pro, I get the following error:


Normally I would just think this would have to do with having another instance of the layer open in another application. However, there are no other instances of Pro, ArcMap or ArcCatalog open when I have tried this. The weird thing is, if I close Pro and open ArcMap, I am able to join the table and calculate the field without any issues.


Why would this work in ArcMap but not Pro? Any ideas?
