Can I access Doc. Properties through Office Add-in?

Post by ab4ok » Thu Feb 23, 2012 12:17 pm

I was wondering if it's possible to access the Document Properties when opened through the MS Office Add-in? Possibly as a variable? For example, we have many Word documents where we would like to have the document's version number in the header or footer. Currently, the people maintaing these documents are trying to manually match them up which doesn't work well when someone forgets to do it.

The Office Add-in toolbar does include a button that displays the document properties. You can access the current version number from that screen.
As you know we do not interfere with document contents to pass in values or text so we cannot automatically populate any field with a version number.
