How to update a check out document in SP2010? RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1-      1. Where does file go after checking out (not using draft folder option)

           2. How to make changes to the file which has been checked out?(not using draft folder option). I like to check out the file to server not in my draft folder and then make changes to it before I check in. How can I access this file for editing? In Ribbon bar 'Edit Document' option is disable. 

    Note: I am not using 'Use my local draft folder option'

  • Question One: This depends on your OS.  Please note that these locations are on the desktop / client of the person who currently has the file checked out.

    1. Windows 7 +: Look in %userprofile%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.MSO\
    2. Earlier versions of Windows: Look in (C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files)

    As far as I can recall, the file will have a temporary file name.  You'll have to look for it by combining the file extension and the last file save date

    Question Two: Once you've opened the file from the above location, just double click it and it should open iup in the respective editor.  It should allow you to check the file contents.

    Hope that helps

  • Hi.

    When you take a file in checkout, SharePoint create in the content database a copy of the binary data of your document.

    A site collection administrator can force checkin to commit the changes to the current document.

    You can modify a file that another user has take in out.

    I got this.  It's why I've not referenced the drafts folder.   Look at the filke paths I've suggested.

    "C:\Users\xyz\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files"
