Upload document with same name into document library multiple times RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI All,

    multiple documents with "same" name to same document library. I tried the OUT-OF-THE-BOX functionality and found that it did not work. Let me know if i missed any library settings for saving as versioning.



    Thanks & Regards Satish Dugasani

  • The only way to have multiple documents with the same filename in the same library would be to use versioning.  As you upload each file it will be saved as a new version of the same file and could be accessed via the version menu on the file.  But I doubt that's what you are looking for.  

    You can't have multiple files in a file folder on your hard drive that have the same name and you can't do it in a SharePoint document library either.

    From a business point of view what are you trying to accomplish?  If you'll describe your purpose we may be able to help.
