When editing a .doc file in a SharePoint document library, you need to always “check Out” when you see “Read Only”. You need to “Check In” the document after editing to TFS.

Check-Out when you see ReadOnly

Figure: Warning - If you see “Read-Only” in the title bar, then you need to “Check Out”

Click Check-Out to edit

Figure: Click “Check Out” to edit the document in TFS

Save before closing
Figure: When you click “yes”, expect a 2nd dialog (for SharePoint controlled docs)

Check - in after saving the changes
Figure: Good – the dialog you should always get on saving
