End User having issues - he can check out docs but cant check in

  Asked By: Roxanne    Date: Jan 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5354

Cannot check in checked-out documents via document library interface. Check-in
screen (with file selection, comments box and Check In button) appears, but when
Check In is pressed, the following error displays: "This document was checked
out to your local drafts folder but the local copy could not be checked in to
the site. Close any application that is editing the document and try to check in
again, or discard the checkout." (The application is closed, and I have checked
appropriate permissions on the local drafts folder.)

We are using MOSS 2007 and Office 2007

Have him open the file  from his local  drafts folder  in Word 2007 and use the
CheckIn option on the server menu to check  the file in.
