PFB the description of the issue :
Basically, we do data migration(Mostly documents)from Webdocs to Sharepoint, So after migrating these docs(using importer tool) into sharepoint site, when we try to Edit the properties of the document(especially office 2007, eg. docx,xlsx)and then save,
then this version's properties go blank and never get released. Alternatively, when I upload a doc this problem does not occur. What we tried to analyze is that, while clicking on the edit properties of the doc and save, looks like the document's properties(built-in)
which is of blank values are overridden with the 'migrated properties' of the document. But when we upload a doc, since we are supplying all new values initially in the edit page, these values are absorbed into the document's built-in properties, so during
the second time edit, there isn't a chance of the document having blank values. Also office 2007 docs can absorb all the customized fields and values that we provide, unlike 97-2003 docs which only has few built-in fields like Title and Author.
Is there a workaround for the Migrated docs ? We dont want the properties of the docs to go blank and go into draft mode. Happens even with simple check-out and check-in. Please share your views.
