How can I dynamically add a SharePoint content type field into a Word document with OpenXML SDK?


  • SharePoint should already do this for you automatically... Any reason you need to do it yourself? – Paul Lucas Dec 15 '11 at 13:15
  • Yes. There is not a standard template for the documents. I need to insert this field into all Word documents programmatically. – Élodie Petit Dec 15 '11 at 16:30

I'd suggest doing it in an Event Receiver. Where in the word document do you want to add the Content Type ? In a Bookmark ?

I might have some sample code I can send you.


  • Hi Ian. I need to insert the field into footer area. – Élodie Petit Dec 22 '11 at 18:35
  • What version of Word are you using ? – Ian Jan 3 '12 at 16:29
