    Overwrite Latest Version is grey out

    Jake Bakerin

      I have some files which the "Overwrite Latest Version" is grey out when I tried to check them in? Is there any reason for this?

      Thank You

          Hi Jake,

          Please ensure you have the proper permissions to overwrite the latest version.

           

          We have a document in our KB that can help:

                  Hi Jake,

                  Please recall from the document that this needs to be applied in both folder and state permissions. Also, the fact that it is also a state permission, means that you may be seeing effects of state permission inheritance. Ensure inheritance not playing a role here. You may need to think ahead before checking the box for "ignore permission from the previous states" in state properties.

                   

                  Cheers,

                          Ah, in that case, your problems are Gremlins... yep, no other logical explanation, just Gremlins.

                           

                          Jokes aside, that's pretty weird. All I can say is to be vigilant for when it happens again. Try exiting the vault view then logging back in if it happens again. also, ask a colleague with the same permissions to check for the same behavior.

                              Francisco,

                              Just one thing, the files I have problem with are the files I packngo and worked off line and saved back to the Vault

                              Do you think there might be something else caused this problem?

                                • Re: Overwrite Latest Version is grey out

                                  So the way I was able to reproduce the behavior is by saving this text file out of PDM and renamed it to "2". I created a new file as far as the database is concerned when saving back in (or working back online). in this new-file situation, there is no latest version to overwrite.

                                   

                                  Perhaps you created a new file or renamed while working out of the vault?

                                   

                                  editing the contents of text file  "New Text Document.txt" out of PDM, then overwriting the vaulted checked out file did not gray out the checkbox.

                                   

                                  Regards,
