Portal and site doc libraries

  Asked By: Taylor    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 844

say I have a portal document library open in
Explorer View, and I want to copy and paste a document from there,
to a site-level document library in Explorer view. This works fine,
obviously...but the problem lies in the document properties.

When you upload a document, you have different properties you can
set (like description, name, etc). Among all this, you can also
define whether they're single lines of text, multiple lines, etc
etc...whenever I do a copy from a portal doc lib to a site doc lib
as previously mentioned (or even vice versa), all contents from
every property column is retained, except for the columns that are
defined as multiple lines of text. They just show up as blank
fields. Could anyone provide an explanation for this behavior?

document  in Sharepoint is stored as a record in a SQL Table, therefore when
you move a document from within the same server, the property  are retained as
only the pointed to the folder where the doc  is stored is changed, therefore all
document properties  should come over.

I think if you can see property column  after transferring from the portal  to a
site doc lib  it may be that portal and site  document library  definition are

Also, is the property column defined the same way between the portal doc lib and
site doc lib.

The column  that is causing the problem  is "Description", it is in
both the portal  and site  document libraries. I checked the
definitions for both, and they're identical.

More likely then the Portal List Definition and Site List Definition are

The definitions would be in the template, right?
