Check in file in a shared project

Hello,

 

I have stumbled in the following problem. I want to rename a file that is in check in and change manually the references within its parents (drawing, assembly). When I change the reference within the drawing, after saving, the drawing becomes automatically check out by me (reserved for write). How can I check in the file automatically?

I was hoping to get an answer on this isssue at it starts to be important to me.

 

If I have a file that is ReservedForWriteByMe, how can I commit (Check In) the file in a shared project?

Hello,

 

I have tried your code but it does not seem to work for me. Inventor fails when I try to set ReservedForWriteByMe = false. I am not using Apprentice, but Inventor application. I have followed your steps, but maybe I am missing something. Any ideeas?

 

These documents have been checked out when saving, I am trying to put them in check in to spare the user of some problems.

 

Thanks

Irina

What version of Inventor are you using ?

Are your project file, set as shared project ?

Is the ReservedForWriteName, the same as username in Inventor ?

I am using Inventor 10.

 

The project type is in fact Semi-Isolated.

 

And yes the ReservedForWriteName is the same as the username in Inventor.

Have you changed  Dim invApprenticeDoc As ApprenticeServerDocument

to  dim odoc as inventor.document ?

the Apprenticeserver does not work in VBA

No, I am not using ApprenticeDocument, I am using Inventor.Document that also has all the required properties. My add-in runs in Inventor so I can not use Apprentice.

If I remember right,

Shared project is reserveforwrite the files on the server.

 

Semi-Isolated  is copy the file from the server

to your workspace on your pc (like vault). 

I think you have to checkin the file on the server.
