The last time I wrote this column (March 2006), I shared an application that allows you to update all the MicrosoftÃÂ® Word documents in a folder and its subfolders. Each time the application finds a document in the specified path, it updates the document properties to match those you specified in the application.

At the beginning of another lovely day of writing courseware in mad pursuit of unrealistic deadlines, I received a frantic call from a business partner. He was at the end of a long consulting project and had several hundred MicrosoftÃÂ® Word documents, all of which required their document properties to be set identically, except the Title property of the document, which was to be based on the document file name, minus the .

When my users run a search against a site with a bunch of document libraries they will often search for terms that are in the title of the doc, if they do know the title they will put that in. What I would like to do is have the results ordered
such that if any hits are on the document metadata (eg Title) then they are presented first and any results that are from hits on the content of the documents are presented later.
So, if they get the title spot on in their search query that document will appear first .... if they don't get it right then the likelyhood is that the title is something like what they entered so similar titled docs are presented first and then those
with matching content ....
How can I achieve this?
I have created a new web part page and added a document library to that page. In the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is enabled and I can edit the document properties.
When I add another web part to the page and go back to select a document, on the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is no disabled. I can still edit the document using the context menu of the document.
Permissions on the library did not change when I added the additional web part. The only change to the page was adding an additional web part.
I need to upload a new version of an existing Word document (same file name) while keeping the properties that have already been set in Sharepoint for the document. I can only find that the properties are either deleted or reset
to default values. How do I avoid this?
I have tried both with and without versioning activated. In either case the properties are reset.
I have also tried to overwrite the document throught the web interface and through Office/Explorer. Same apply here.
I have a client who wants to have metadata captured for a document in a document library exported into a Microsoft Document. Does anyone know how this may be achieved?
Thank you for your thoughts and comments.
Hello I have a problem with managed metadata on two different servers and would like to ask you to try it.
I assume you have managed metadata service running.
1, Open some document library in some site
2, Create column - managed metadata type and select some termset and set it as required.
3, Upload a document and fill in metadata when you will be asked.
4, Then edit properties and check, that metadata are there.
5, Save this library as template.
6, Deploy document library from this template and try steps 3+4.
My problem is, you can select metadata, but they are not saved. e.g. when you check document properties managed metadata are not there.
Can you confirm this behavior ?
Thank you very much.
P.S.: one more weird thing. If you do metadata filling using office 2010 compatible application. Metadata remain there, but they are not visible in document library properties.
