Issue in documents checked out in sharepoint document library

  Asked By: Rushikesh    Date: Nov 08    Category: MOSS    Views: 4954

We are using SharePoint2007; I have created new document library in our portal and added some documents.

When I checked out any document,it throws following error message

"This document could not be done checked out to your local drafts folder.The document may have already been checked out,or the local drafts folder could not be written to"

but even after getting this message that document gets checked out and if I open it then it gets open in Read mode instead of Edit mode and if I try to write anything in that document then it shows following error

"This modification is not allowed because the selection is locked"

(Note : when try to checked out PDF file then this error does not occur but when try to checked out excel/word file only then above shown error occurs)

I have tried following solution but no success

1) Set Enable Client Integration to Yes from Central Admin but got no success.

What is the reason behind it and how can I resolve this issue.

Thanks in advance,

I think i also faced same kind of problem with MS Word/Excel files.
Please try to set the below option in your IE browser and check it once.
Open your IE Browser-->Open Tools-->Internet Options-->Security Tab-->Internet/Local intranet-->Custom Level-->Under Downloads-->set "Enable" for 3 options

and then browse your sharepoint and check it once.

By default these options will be enabled, if some times it goes disabled then this problem will come.

AFter doing this also , you are facing issue then try to check the permissions and if possible share the screenshots.
