How to add content type to a document libary and keep columns

  Asked By: Anila    Date: Mar 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1643

I've added 3 content types to a document library which already had columns in that had nothing to do with the content type. I needed these columns to be part of every content type in the library - including the three i have just added.

I know when you add a new column, there is an option to add to existing content types in the library - is there any way to do this the other way round?

Simplified explanation:

Column 1 - part of document library - part of "used in" setting for all content types apart from the three just added
Column 2 - part of document library - part of "used in" setting for all content types apart from the three just added

Content Type 1,2,3 - Do not have Column 1,2 included in the "used in" setting

Any ideas?

Yes. Just click on Content Type from the List Settings page, and click the link "Add from existing  site or list columns"
