We have an existing SharePoint library that was created years ago for project management. The users who used to manage it are no longer with the company.
The library is setup with multiple folders. The users who have left the company had some way of assigning values to the library columns for these folders.
For example, There is a column "Active" that indicates whether the project is active or not. Some of the folders are marked "Yes" for this column. I cannot figure out how they edited that field. Regular documents allow me to check out the document, and edit the field, folders do not. The column is grayed out in datasheet view, and missing from the properties form.
Is there someway to do this through the GUI, or were they likely using a 3rd party product to make the change?
