How to upload a file to document library as a new version to existing document when uploading with a different filename? Can this be done OOTB or is there any tool which does this or is there any solution which can be implemented ?

Eg : I have ABC.PDF and I send the file to my manager . my manager send it back updating the document and filename abc_copy.pdf . Now when I upload I want it to be updated as a new version to abc.PDF and not create a new abc_copy.PDF.

  • Through server object model, you can implement this functionality. In an Item Event Receiver, in the ItemUpdated() event handler, you can capture spfile, splistitem and update the versions of this file/splistitem. – userAZLogicApps Mar 17 '16 at 5:50
  • Is there some metadata in the file properties that can identify a unique file? – SlackerAmit Mar 17 '16 at 7:38
