Any eror messages?
Yes: The message I get says, "Cannot open (file path and name). You may not have permission or the file may be open already."
Try the Open as a copy option in the dialog.
Thank you! That worked. What can I do to prevent this from happening again? I exported the copy to IDML format (just in case), then saved the copy as a regular InDesign file, closed it, and opened it again. How can I figure out why it wouldn't open?

It sounds like a network issue to me -- possibly the lock file wasn't properly deleted the last ime the file was closed.
Basically, we got lucky.
