Word 07 Quick Parts--an equivalent in powerpoint?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I recently learned about creating templates in Word and using "Quick Parts" I find very useful as part of those templates, helping me to easily choose the appropriate text for each document.

I have a powerpoint slide show that needs to be similarly tailored depending on the audience. I'm wondering if there is anything equivalent to that which would let me just as easily modify a powerpoint template?

Word 07 Quick Parts--an equivalent in powerpoint?

I recently learned about creating templates in Word and using "Quick Parts" I find very useful as part of those templates, helping me to easily choose the appropriate text for each document.

Document Set, shared columns, Word Documents and quick parts


I have a document set with shared columns docset1, sharedcol1, sharedcol2.  My document set is made up of another content type (subdoctype1) that does not have sharedcol1, and sharedcol2, but they are shared via the doc set.

How do I add sharedcol1 and sharedcol2 to quick parts in the word doc?

If I create a document in the set of subdoctype1 and go to insert->quick part->Document Property I do not see the shared columns.  If I save the document and re-open it I do see the shared columns.  How can I add the shared columns to a template with no values?  It seem like I need an actual instance of the doc set with my sub-document type to exist before I can use it.

How do I pre-populate document quick parts based on site metadata?


Anyone have any thoughts on how I would populate data into document quick parts?

The answer seems pretty simple with content types and such, but the complication is that I want to pull in contact information from a list local to the site in which the library resides.  For example:


A project site is created.  The company's contact information is copied down to the site via the site creation process.  A Letter Standard content type is managed throughout the site, and pulls the contact information from the list and populates the appropriate pieces within the document automatically.

Anyone done something similar to this?

How do I adjust the word/character limit in Announcement web parts?


So In 2007 there was a default limit of 250 characters in annoucement web parts, that could be adjusted via the "Limit Len=" in designer, but I do not see anything close to that in 2010 and that limit is simply too small for real use.

I have the following text "Items focused on helping you develop and implement strategies are included on this page.  If you are looking for either the Strategic Solutions Team (SST) or the Sales Resource Hub...you found it!  We will continue to refine and add materials to Strategy to help you win...period!"

That gets cut off with half a sentence to go.  Honestly, who is the genius who put such a small limit on this web part and then removed the only way to adjust it via designer? 



Document set with default documents that use quick parts

Using Quick Parts with document libary, template loses field association when moved

Using Quick Parts with document libary, losing association with columns
Hi, I hope someone can help.  Sorry for length
Office Sharepoint 2007 version with Office 2007

The Situation:
We have a workflow which is used to progress a set of Change Control procedures. This utalises a task list, where as each task is complete, the workflow writes the values gathered from the task forms into a word document.  We have a content type associated with a task list with a corresponding content type created on the document library list to hold the values that users enter.  We also use a word 2007 template which has quick parts added to it and its these quick parts that get populated with the user data as the workflow progresses.  So we can populate a customer change request form for users.  This is all deployed using a feature.

The problem:
In our test environment this works fine.  As the workflow progresses the document library columns get updated with the task list columns data, as expected, which in turn means the word document gets updated with the correct values.  All good!!
However, when we move the whole solution onto out live environment, (we do this using visual studio to package all code and depl

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )
