How to create a workflow action that checks in the document while "overwrite previous minor version" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to update metadata of a document after it has been checked in.  I don't have SharePoint server, therefore I am unable to insert the version of a document into the document as a quick part.

    I currently have a workflow that takes the version, stores it as a workflow variable, checks the document out, updates a number field with the document version, and checks the document back in again.

    Each one of these results in another minor version.  I'm wondering if there is a visual studio option which will allow me to check in and overwrite the current minor version.  I'm not very familiar with visual studio, but I have done basic programming in many languages, and have people around me that can help me with it.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  • Use Update List Item action in your Sharepoint Custom Workflow:

    Check out Current Item,

    Modify your metadata field,

    Update List Item,

    Discard Checked out Item

    Hope this helps!
