Backstory: For our company intranet we wanted to add an employee seating chart feature so that employees can see where other employees in the building sit. I created a document library to store the floor plans as Visio files so that they can be viewed by the employees on another page using the Visio Web Access webpart.

Problem: The initial save to the document library worked but whenever I try to check the Visio file into the document library it gives me the following error:

Internal Error #3400 Action 1787: Check in file First try closing and reopening the file. Next try to restart Visio

I found a solution on the Microsoft forums saying that I need Visio Premium instead of Professional but I have Premium so that is not the problem.

I found this blog entry which talks about required fields being missing when trying to submit changes. However, I looked at the default document library columns and none of them appeared to be required. Finally, I checked the "Info" page in Visio itself where you have to check-in the document and I found a bunch of properties on the right that were not all filled in.

The image below shows the properties inside the red box. I made sure that all of them were filled in and after that I no longer received an error when checking in the Visio drawing.
