what are the consequences of Changing content type to the already created documents in Document Library ?


  • I've a Document Library with 2 Custom Document Content Types. Content types are specified with different Document Templates, Say ContentType1 using DocumentTemplate1.Dotx where ContentType2 using DocuemntTemplate2.Dotx.

    Question here is, There are documents created using ContentType1, I wanted to change the content Type to ContentType2. As Both are using different Document Templates, I suspect the document may Corrupt.

    What happen to the properties used in Header ? E.g. in DocumentTemplate1.Dotx dont have header, where DocumentTemplate2.Dotx having the header.

    What happen to the Sub-Paragraph Zone ? E.g. in DocumentTemplate1.Dotx dont have multiple paragraph and index, where DocumentTemplate2.Dotx having the paragraph and index like 1.1, 1.2,, etc.

    Kindly someone give me some clarity on this situation !
