    Hi Kenneth,

    based on the screenshot the WRD file was never checked in before as the storage category is empty. However "Edit" should be working even in this situation. Here the system will then try to get the file for the origin upload directory.

    As a reason why the edit button is greyed out I can only imagine the status setup. You mentioned that it is status IW which means "In Work" I guess. Have you maintained status type 'S' or 'O'? Because with status type 'S' editing will not work as this is the "locked status" then. If it is type 'O' then please check if you are entered as user. Because if another user ID is displayed for the document edit will also not work.

    Best regards,
