I'v been struggling with getting to work for a bit so thought I would raise on here to see if anyone else has experienced a similar issue / can point me in the direction of any guides.
I have used the search bar to see any anyone else has posted this but have been unsuccessful.
I wish to create multiple templates(Word / Powerpoint) which I can access from a sharepoint 2010 Library. Library Tools > Documents > New Documents > Templates should appear under here.
From here I should be able to open a template. When opening a template the Document Information Panel should open which should display all the Columns that have been set up on the Site Library.
So far I'm just trying to get two templates to work - 1 Word doc / 1 Power Point template.
I have Created the 2 site content types for each of the template. Under advanced settings I have uploaded the template I wish to use.
I have then gone back into the site Library > Library Settings > Advanced Settings > Allowed Management of content Types.
I have then added the two content types I have created with the templates inside of them.
From here I have now created all my Library Columns.
I have then gone back into the content types and added these columns to the Content Types. (Columns > Add from existing site or list > current list > Added all column names > Ok)
When looking back in the Library settings I can see that these columns are "used in" the content types.
I now go back to the Library > Library Tools > Documents > New Document and select one of the templates.
When going into the Power point template all the column names are pulled through. When saving these Power Point documents the meta data entered will then be imputed into the Library and will be visible.
When doing this the same for the word template the Information Panel is not appearing at all. > I have checked the advanced properties > Custom and it appears that the custom fields are not pulling through in word?
Please let me know if any further information is required. Or if anything needs to be explained a bit better.
