We have an existing accounting system that produces various reports and spreadsheets on a schedule, which are then emailed out to recipients. Cleverly, email is the _only_ mechanism for delivering the reports out of the system, though I have full control
over the contents of the file produced.
To ensure that the reports end up organised in our sharepoint site, I had imagined adding the content type and other metadata into the spreadsheet, in order that they can be emailed into a drop library and the content organiser can apply rules to
put the files in the right place. As there are a large number of reports, I was thinking that this could lend itself to a common approach, rather than needing to adjust every report individually.
My question is:
- is it possible to apply metadata within the file when it is produced, and have sharepoint pick it up? If so, how do I go about doing it?
