locked
file is checked out or locked RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am the site administrator of the site I'm having an issue with.  I am trying to upload a document to a library.  I get error "file is checked out or locked for editing by username."  The problem is that I don't see the document in the library at all.  It is not rendering in the list.  I asked the person to whom it is checked out to check it back in which she did.  I still do no see it in the library.  Can anyone guess as to the issue?  I should always have been able to see it, right?  I even looked in the folder in Designer and didn't see it there.

  • I just tried to filter the Modified List by that user, then it showed up.  Seems like some weird glitch that righted itself by playing with the fitler.

  • run4iit. 

    Did the concerned person publish the document? For the document to be visible to other users, a major version of document needs to exist. 

    Thanks
