I know you can co-author a document that is stored in SharePoint online using Office 2010. It has some very nice features and works well.
Can this be done in Office 2007 as well? Or do you need to check out the document, edit it, then check back in for somebody else to make a change?
Does it work similar to Office 2010, or is it necessary to upgrade to 2010 to get this functionality?
Office 2007 not supported (office.microsoft.com/.../document-collaboration-and-co-authoring-HA101812148.aspx) - you need Office 2010.
Please also note Table 7 in the Office Web Apps Service Description (www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx)

I agree with the previous response post. With the exception of OneNote when saving as the 2007 format, the other documents cannot use co-authoring, as described in the first link. Thanks for your response Jesper.
