Access "ID" field with Quickparts in Word? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any easy way to access the Sharepoint "ID" field directly/easily from Word?  Quickparts only seems to be able to show custom fields from SP.  I was hoping to use a macro or similar mechanism to automatically add this number to a document.  Thanks.

  • Hi Fredericks,


    You can use the custom field update with ID value by workflow (your another post), then display custom field in the Word document with Quickparts per this article.

  • Thanks for the reply.  But is there a way to directly access/display the ID field (e.g., programatically in a macro)?  As you saw in my other post, using a workflow can be problematic when creating new documents, since Word locks all fields for that document from being edited.
