wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
I have created a custom content type.
the template is an xltx that I created from an xlsx provided by one of the users.
I added 2 simple custom columns ( 2 choice fields )
I choose to create an instance of the content type from
documents tab -> new item -> new <content type>
so far so good.
I make some changes to the xlsx and update the 2 columns associated with the content type.
when I try to save the xlsx , a label is displayed saying that the document is checked out.
when I close the document I get the "other users will not be able to see the changes until you check the document in" ( even though i never checked the document out )
I then get an error when I click yes saying "no version checked out"
so I click no to close the document.
SharePoint displays the document as checked out.
I select "discard check out" and SharePoint says can't find checked out version please delete document.
seems strange ? anyone else notice this problem ?
