I'm trying to write a vbscript to be able to checkout an excel file that is stored on sharepoint server.

Currently I can check the file out from SharePoint 2010: Link to open Excel file in edit-mode mode

However, I'm trying to check the file back in but not able to. I've searched and tried the checkout functions per http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff194456%28v=office.14%29.aspx but not able to.

Currently the code I have is

Sub CheckInFile

    Dim ExcelApp, ExcelSheet, ExcelBook
    Dim myURL

    myURL = "http://server/Site/excel.xlsx"

    Set ExcelApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")                        

    If (ExcelApp.WorkBooks.CanCheckIn(myURL) = True) Then
        msgbox ("here")
        ExcelApp.WorkBooks.Open (myURL)
        ExcelApp.Application.WorkBooks.CheckIn myURL

        ExcelApp.ActiveWorkbook.Close
        ' Quit Excel.
        ExcelApp.Quit
        ' Clean Up
        Set ExcelApp= Nothing
    End If

End Sub

However the script stops and fails at the if statement, rather doesn't execute. Is there a similar vbscript function to check in a file ?

  • Hi there, no exception ... its done on a website on sharepoint server ... the whole script just stops and never gets to the message box prompt for debugging I know its the if statement because if i comment it out, i can get to message box but the other problem i'd face would be "ExcelApp.Application.WorkBooks.CheckIn myURL"
