Moss 2007 Word 2007 date metadata update issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • We set up a document library on MOSS 2007 and added an extra column for a date field. When someone adds a word 2003 document everything works fine but when someone adds a word 2007 document and you go to edit the properties of the document, the date change will not take. I have not tried any other Office 2007 documents and any other metadata field seems to update just not the date. Anybody have any thoughts on this?

  • Hi,

    I understand you that when you open the document in Office 2007 and update the Document Property-Server metadata fields, but when go to the SharePoint document library the metadata fields are not updated.

    Please try the steps below:

    1.      Open Word

    2.      Click on the office button, Word options

    3.      Click on Save 

    4.      Yours was configured to "The server drafts location on this computer" – try to changed this to "The web server"

    Hope it helps.
