File Properties

  Asked By: Harshit    Date: Apr 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 967

I have a requirement where I have to consume data from a list/photo library and
insert it into the actual file's summary properties.

For ex:

Say If I upload a document/photo pertiaing to a application record, the program

Titel, Subject, Author, Keywords, comments and so on.

Can we do this using C# and Sharepoint.

to scroll all the way to the bottom and find more information. It seems there is
a .dll on MSDN somewhere...
