Example

This example verifies that a document is not checked out by another user and that it can be checked out.


Sub CheckDocOut(strDocCheckOut As String) 
    If Documents.CanCheckOut(strDocCheckOut) = True Then
        Documents.CheckOut strDocCheckOut 
    Else 
        MsgBox "You are unable to check out this " _ 
         & "document at this time." 
    End If  
End Sub  

    

To call the preceding CheckDocOut subroutine, use the following subroutine and replaceservername/workspace/drawing.vdx with the path to and name of an actual file located in an enhanced folder on a Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server computer.


Sub DocOut() 
    Call CheckDocOut _ 
        (strDocCheckOut:="http://servername/workspace/drawing.vdx") 
End Sub
