Replace a document in a document library

  Asked By: Jamison    Date: Jun 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 17675

I am trying to post a new version of a document into a document
library. I want the additional data associated with the document to
stay in tact, but replace the actual document that is in the entry. I
don't see that I can change that part of the list when I am editing
the entry. Is it possible?

If you upload the new version  of the document  over the old version,
using the exact same url, I believe that the document properties are
retained. I have done this a couple of times using code and found
this to be the case, but did not test this to any extent.

The old version will then be retained in the version history of the
document library.
