Checkin from vault problem

I am trying to add a file (say xxx.doc) to the vault. "xxx.doc" is a generic workmanship document that applies to 2 different projects. I can "check in from disk" into the first project - no problem.

What I cannot do is to get "xxx.doc" also shown in the second project. I am not allowed to "check in from vault" into the second project. I also cannot go to the 2nd project and attach the file to that project.

A workaround is to create a dummy file (say "project2 files.doc") and "check in from disk" to project 2. I can now attach xxx.doc to it. This leaves an extra file in the vault tree functioning simply as a placeholder. If "add attachment" would work on a project in the same way it works on other files the problem would be solved.

Am I missing something?
