Check in / Check out question

  Asked By: Roxana    Date: Feb 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2227

My organization is using SPS2003. I have various office installations
and I know they all work differently with Checking in and checking out a
document. I am also aware that you can check in / out a document through
SharePoint, but I have a question about how checking in works with
office 2003.

Here's my scenario:

I have a SharePoint site with an excel spreadsheet.

The user accesses the site, goes to the document library and checks out
the document.

The user then opens the document in excel 2003 and modifies it.

The user then uses the x to close the document.

Excel then asks if you want to save it. So far so good.

After saving the document, excel then displays 2 different behaviors.
The fist is that Excel just closes, the second is that you are prompted
to check in the document. Both users are using Office 2003 sp2 on XP

Does anyone have any idea why the two behaviors and how to modify what
behavior is rendered. Ideally I would like Excel to prompt me to check
in the document.
