Force Check In of Document

I have shared directories setup in GroupWise 7 and in those directories are documents.  I have several which have been checked out and not checked back in.  How do I FORCE these to check in so I can delete them?  I have updated versions of the documents that I need to replace these with but cannot proceed without first deleting all previous versions.
I have tried a work around from Novell whereby you look at the properties of the document to determine the checkout location.  (C:\Windows\Temp)  I then created another document with the same numeric name given to the checked out document and placed it in the same directory (C:\Windows\Temp).  This is supposed to allow me to check it back in but does not seem to work.

Thanks in advance,
