I have created a document library in SharePoint 2010, in which I have created two columns, one for "Month" and another for "Year". I have set these columns up with a calculated default value, so that when I add a document to the library, the "Month" field is set to the current month and the "Year" field is set to the current year. The functionality works correctly when I upload a document to SharePoint; the fields are populated with their calculated default values.
However, when I try to create a document using the "New Document" button, the calculated default values do not appear in the Document Information Panel fields in Word. The fields and associated data such as drop-down list options are being pulled through into Word as expected, but they are blank rather than being populated with default values.
Is it possible to populate the fields in the Document Information Panel with calculated default values? If so, what do I need to do to get it working?
