We've created an ItemUpdating EventReceiver that sets various properties (columns in the library) on the document based on user selections in a couple other properties. This code works fine and for all file formats in a Windows 2003 Server/MOSS 2007
In a Windows 2008/MOSS 2007 environment, however, when we upload MS Office 2007 documents (e.g. docx, xlsx, pptx) these updates are not made. What's interesting is that the code does actually execute (we've compared logging statements for non-MS
Office 2007 files to MS Office 2007 files, and all settings being equal, the code executes exactly the same way on both files, but when the library list view is refreshed, the pre-MS Office 2007 document HAS the values, but the MS Office 2007 documents do
Anyone have any idea why this code is not able to "commit" the values to the documents? Again, the code works fine (per our logging output), it's just that the values do "not take".....Is there something in the Windows 2008/MOSS 2007/Office 2007 "integration"
that might be interferring or that would prevent values form being updated?
