Hi,

Just like perforce or any other version controller allow multiple users to checkout a single file, can we enable multiple checkout feature in MOSS 2007 document library
Is this possible in Sharepont 2007, if yes then how can we do this

Thanks,
gaurav

As far as I am aware the answer is no.

The whole point of "checking out" a file is so that it is not available to anyone else.

If you could "check out" a single file to multiple users, then what is the point of having a "check out" function (and how would you manage "merging" of the contents )

Thanks for the reply.

The example which I gave here, "perforce" allows multiple users to checkout a single file and later allow them to resolve and merge.
Is merging and resolving available in MOSS

I specifically just want to conform whether multiple checkout feature exists in MOSS or not.

thanks,
gaurav

Yes, resolve and merge do exist, although I don't know the full extent (I haven't used them much).

AFAIK only a single user can check-out files in MOSS.

Eeek. Ok I might have gotten confused, looking for Microsoft Office features as opposed to SharePoint features.

I just spent some minutes testing versioning and file uploading in a document library in MOSS and I can't see any merge functionality.

Sorry.
