Type: System.Boolean

Optional Boolean. True saves the document to the server location. The default is True.

Type: System.Object

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

Type: System.Boolean

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

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