Sharepoint login error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our team uses an excel file in our Sharepoint to keep track of work progress and such. There are many people checking out and checking in this file from Sharepoint. Sometimes an error will occur when someone tries to check it, after it's been checked in. The error says it's not checked out to anyone, but it won't let anyone check it out. The file can be opened as "Read Only". When this happens the file must be removed from Sharepoint and reloaded by our team lead. This has happened many times and we don't know what's causing it or how to avoid it, or how to fix it. The error is shown below. Any help with this would be much appreciated.

    The file "Shared Documents/Tracking DBO.xls" is not checked out.   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.CheckOutFile(String bstrUrl, String bstrWebRelativeUrl, Boolean bCheckoutToLocal, String bstrLastModified)
       at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.CheckOutFile(String bstrUrl, String bstrWebRelativeUrl, Boolean bCheckoutToLocal, String bstrLastModified)

  • HI,

    GO to the settings of your document library and select  no for the file required to be checked out before editing.


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
