I am having some trouble importing word custom document properties into columns within Sharepoint. The text fields work fine, but the number type fields are turning up blank. We are using word 2003. When I upload as docx Sharepoint interprets the integer (1,2,0 etc.) as the following: 1.92514280828469E-302 (which is not right).
I am thinking, as a simple solution, to convert the "number" type in custom document properties (link to content) to always default to "text" type. But word automatically changes the format to "number" when it recognizes a number from the link to content. Is there a way to change this autoformat function? the Type box is greyed out. http://postimage.org/image/7v2eos24t/
