    InfoPath and SharePoint Check-in/Check-out

    Hi all,

    Is there no way in SharePoint to have an InfoPath filler form open and prompt you to check-out the file like Excel or other MS Office products do? We can't seem to get Check-in/Check-out to play nicely with the InfoPath file. And it's not being saved in the same location as the form library - it's being stored on an entirely different SharePoint Document library.

     So - when users open an existing XML, it is from this SharePoint Document Library, where it is saved to? I would probably look into using the web services for Check In / Check Out - if you aren't on Office 365. I think those are blocked even in Filler. I have an old blog post about this for Browser forms, but I know we've used a similar technique in Filler forms as well: http://www.infopathdev.com/blogs/hilary/archive/2010/11/10/check-that-form-out-or-in-automatically.aspx
