Workbook.CheckInWithVersion method (Excel)
Saves a workbook to a server from a local computer, and sets the local workbook to read-only so that it cannot be edited locally.
expression.CheckInWithVersion (SaveChanges, Comments, MakePublic, VersionType)
expression A variable that returns a Workbook object.
|SaveChanges||Optional||Variant||True to save the workbook to the server location. The default is True.|
|Comments||Optional||Variant||Comments for the revision of the workbook being checked in (applies only if SaveChanges is set to True).|
|MakePublic||Optional||Variant||True to allow the user to publish the workbook after it is checked in.|
|VersionType||Optional||Variant||Specifies versioning information for the workbook.|
Setting the MakePublic parameter to True submits the workbook for the approval process, which can eventually result in a version of the workbook being published to users with read-only rights to the workbook (applies only if SaveChanges is set to True).
To take advantage of the collaboration features built into Microsoft Excel, documents must be stored on a Microsoft SharePoint Server.
The following example uses the CanCheckIn method to determine whether the workbook has been stored on a Microsoft SharePoint Server. If the workbook has been stored on a server, the example calls the CheckInWithVersion method to check in the workbook along with the specified comments and version number, save changes to the server location, and submit the workbook for the approval process.
This example is for a workbook-level customization.
Private Sub WorkbookCheckIn() If ActiveWorkbook.CanCheckIn Then ActiveWorkbook.CheckInWithVersion _ True, _ "My updates.", _ True, _ XlCheckInVersionType.xlCheckInMinorVersion Else MessageBox.Show ("This workbook cannot be checked in") End If End Sub
