Document Workspace

  Asked By: Aditi    Date: Apr 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1312

I'm trying to create a document workspace from a new file I just
uploaded and I'm getting this message:

This document is already stored in a Document Workspace. A new Document
Workspace cannot be created for this document.

This is within WSS and I verified that there are no document workspace
within this site.

It's not a matter of whether there is a doc workspace  within the site. When a
document is added to a workspace, the document  itself contains information about
the location of the workspace, and you will get the error you list if you try to
create another one.

but is there an easy way to find out what document
workspace this file  is currently in?

If you open the document, the Task Pane should appear and show you that
information. If the pane doesn't appear, go to Tools -> Shared Workspace.

Ok, now I know there are some serious problems with the document
workspace. I have about 30 files in this one particular document  library
and I get this same message  for all the files. I also have 4 other
document libraries and I'm getting the message for all the document
libraries in this one particular site.

But when I navigate to another document library in another site, it
works fine.

Are you certain the document  library in question is not in a Document Workspace?
A Document Workspace is a specialized site  template - if the site in question
was created  with this template, that would explain the behavior...
