I need to import 700 Word docs (2003 & 2007) from Windows Server 2003 into a SharePoint Server 2010 library. I only have a test server to work with right now and want to do as much pre-work before we launch the actual
My goal: When we launch the shpt server, import all docs into a library so that columns propagate with metatdata automatically.
I'm not sure what the best approach is...
Can I can open each doc and add custom properties (maybe with InfoPath) to import as metadata, then import managed metadata through the term store tool and have it associate with the manually entered custom properties? I don't fully understand
managed metadata, which might pose a problem. And before I start importing terms, I thought I should find out if I've completely misunderstood how taxonomies work.
Or I have an excel spreadsheet with info about each doc in columns that can act as metadata. I could upload this as a list then associate each doc with the list. But it seems wiser to enter the metadata into the documets.
Is it possible to update my docs in advance so that uploading goes smoothly? I have help now for data entry that I won't have later.
I have no resources to spend on tools, and have to figure out and build this&nbs
