I have set up two document libaries: for both check out is required for editing documents. I made a custom destination for the send to command from document library A to document library B. I created a document in library A and have sent it to document library B: so far so good.
Now I am editing the original source document in document library A. After my edition, I checked it back in document library A. I try to send it back to document library B, but this fails: "Copying to the destination did not complete successfully".
After investigating the log files (cause the error message is very unclear: it doesn't work to copy, but why is a mystery), I found out that the document in document library B needs to be checked out. So I checked out the copy in document library B, tried again the send to from document libary A to B and now it succeeds.
My question: is this behaviour as expected? Because if you need to check out the copies first before being able to do the send to function, it will become very annoying if a certain source documents has been copied to various destinations. Moreover, the error message is very unclear, so it won't beÃÂ very clear for end-users why this copy fails.
