How can we set the default value of a Site column

  Asked By: Nagendra    Date: Aug 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 12113

I have written a utility to create site columns bases on the xml given. It handles mostly all types of fields. I have a requirement where I need to set the default value of a site column of type Text to the Document Name. Where Document Name is another site column. Is it possible to do that?

I think I can write a small workflow to do this. On Item updated, I can take the value of the Document name column  to put in the required field.

I assume you would like to update the default  value of a column  upon upload of the document, correcct? If yes then writing an event handler should help here, ItemAdded event and there you can set  the value of the column to the value of the Document's title.

I think event handler would be much better.
