Sharepoint 2010 - Excel - Password Encrypted - Check In Error


  • Hello,

    Can anyone help me regarding the issue we are encountering in SharePoint 2010?  We have a document library and some properties are required however we have set default values on them.  The problem is when we try to checkout and encrypt the excel file with a password and we check it back in we are receiving the following error:

    "Cannot perform this operation.  The file is no longer checked out or has been deleted."

    I have read somewhere here that we should supply details on the required properties.  That's what I did and I was able to check in successfully.  However, whenever I try to checkout and modify the document again the values on the required properties are always removed/cleared out.  Why is that?  Anything we can do to avoid this?
