Some metadata is unmanageable on word docs with MOSS

  Asked By: Rohit    Date: Jul 03    Category: MOSS    Views: 858

I have a doc library that contains various file formats. The metadata entered
by users populates great on the .pdfs. But, if the user opens the word doc and
does a file save as back into the same library under a new name the metadata on
the new file cannot be changed. It just keeps bouncing back to the metadata off
the originating file.

That's actually a feature called "Property Promotion" and is by design.

Can "Property Promotion" be turned off on a doc-by-doc basis?
