Strange check in/out behavior when closing document to a SharePoint library RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a user that is having a strange issue with a specific SharePoint subsite (web)

    The user reported,  Her main concern is  that Word is not prompting her upon exiting word like excel does to check in the document.

    I have reviewed this KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2025595 with the user.

    The issue only seems to happen when she is on the <site> shared docs and when she closes the Word docs from this site via 'Office button > Close'. If she uses the X to close the doc, a check-in prompt is received.

    This issue doesn't recur for user on the other shared docs libraries within this same site, when she uses 'Office button > Close' on other pages, a check-in prompt is received.

    SharePoint 2007 SP2

    Office 2007

    I basically got her to agree to a work around, but it does not make a lot of since why this happens in one library and not the others.

    Any Ideas?
