I need to automatically populate metadata on document upload in a SharePoint Document Library.
The data I have stored in an external list.
Any ideas or samples on how I can acheive that?

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?
I want Auto upload Cognos reports to SharePoint document library with specific metadata.
Any ways to achieve?
Here the author uses Document Information Panels in the Microsoft 2007 Office system to manipulate metadata from Office docs for better discovery and management.
MSDN Magazine April 2008
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 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.
