“Title” field issue with Document Information Panel


Title field is set as required in one of the Content Types used in a doc lib. However, when you open the document in Office and save it without providing any value for Title field, the document is saved, then Office will ask if you want to “check in” the doc, you will say Yes and select Major Version: At this point you receive an error message saying:

“Cannot perform this opertation. The file is no longer checked out or has been deleted.”


“This file could not be checked in because the original version of the file on the server was moved or deleted. A new version of this file has been saved to the server, but your check-in comments were not saved………To save comments with the new version of this file on the server, you must delete the local copy of this file, check out the file from the server again, and then check in the file with any comments you want to add.”

You will try many things but fail. Moreover, you will find no logical explanation. Finally you will google the crap thing and may reach this post…..

Not me but Microsoft seems to be the saviour:

Here is the known issue and the hotfix:

For a more verbose description:

Hope this helps…..

    I know this is an old post, but what if this is happening on an OOB configuration? (Title is set to Optional by default, no custom columns added.)
    I’m assuming here that the hot-fix was rolled into a later update as well.

    Another reason you may see this error is if you are password protecting office documents.

    Is this still an issue on SharePoint 2010 as I am having the same problem?

      I’m also having the same problem in 2010 SP1 (14.0.6029.1000). How was it resolved in 2010?
