  Asked By: Aurelio    Date: Dec 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1094

I'm trying to update "Author" field using SharePoint OM and it's throwing exception that cannot update a read only field.

Is there a way to update "Author" field using SharePoint OM.

Can you post what code you are using to get the 'Author' field  reference you are trying to update?

((SPListItem)destFile.Item)["Author"] = fileUserList.SelectedValue;
destFile.Item.Update();
I have a column Author in destination document library. If I change Author to say File Author, then it updates correctly.
