Presentation.CheckIn Method (PowerPoint)

Published: July 16, 2012

Returns a presentation from a local computer to a server, and sets the local file to read-only so that it cannot be edited locally.

expression .CheckIn(SaveChanges, Comments, MakePublic)

expression A variable that represents a Presentation object.

Parameters

Name

Required/Optional

Data Type

Description

SaveChanges

Optional

Boolean

True saves the presentation to the server location. The default value is False.

Comments

Optional

Variant

Comments for the revision of the presentation being checked in (only applies if SaveChanges equals True).

MakePublic

Optional

Variant

True allows the user to perform a publish on the presentation after being checked in. This submits the document for the approval process, which can eventually result in a version of the presentation being published to users with read-only rights to the presentation (only applies if SaveChanges equals True).

To take advantage of the collaboration features built into Microsoft PowerPoint, presentations must be stored on a Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server.

This example checks the server to see if the specified presentation can be checked in and, if so, closes the presentation and checks it back into server.

Sub CheckInPresentation(strPresentation As String)

    If Presentations(strPresentation).CanCheckIn = True Then

        Presentations(strPresentation).CheckIn

        MsgBox strPresentation & " has been checked in."

    Else

        MsgBox strPresentation & " cannot be checked in at this time.  Please try again later."

    End If

End Sub

To call the subroutine above, use the following subroutine and replace the "http://servername/workspace/report.ppt" file name with an actual file located on a server mentioned in the Remarks section above.

Sub CheckInPresentation()

    Call CheckInPresentation(strPresentation:= "http://servername/workspace/report.ppt")

End Sub
