check in from SolidWorks

I'm trying to have SolidWorks documents auto check in on the initial save.  I'm not seeing any options for this.  I know that this can be done with Dispatch, but it doesn't seem to have the capability to interface with SolidWorks and errors out if the document is open in SolidWorks.  Are there any other options I'm not thinking of?


Does anyone know how to check in a document from within SolidWorks using the API (either SW or EPDM)?  I know it can be done through the SolidWorks interface, but I can't find a way to do it programmatically.  I'm not finding any SolidWorks APIs for EPDM.  I can't check it in from EPDM as the admin even if the warning "The file is open in another application." is unchecked.  I know how to close the file, check it in, check it out, and open it back up again programmatically, but I'd rather not if I don't have to.  Some files could be quite large and this process would be very time consuming.


Any ideas?
