Require existing site columns

  Asked By: Tami    Date: Aug 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1028

I have a document library that I've added the existing site column
"category" to. I'm using an existing site column because it shows up
in the content query web part properties under "Additional Filters"
whereas a column I create will not (for some reason I have yet to work

Anyway, I need to require this column for new documents but I don't
have the option. Is there something I'm missing? I get the option for
columns I create, and for some existing site columns as well. But not
Category, and not Title.

Because the category column  you are using is from an existing  site
column, it will take its "specific" properties  (locked, length, etc)
from the original creation location.
