I have a document library with a couple of Word docs with Webparts in them. Each pull a hand full of field data from a Sharepoint list. One of the Word Docs is working fine and getting populated with the appropriate fields from the Sharepoint list, the other is not, only one of the 5 fields in the Document are getting populated. Is there a way of troubleshooting this kind of issue. Anyone have any suggestion on where to start. Not an expert on SP at all.
If your word docs are setup correctly, you should see all fields you need populated in the Quick Parts > Document Property section of your word document. I'm pretty new to sharepoint as well but successfully used the following guide to get all my templates setup.
It is well documented and explained, and I hope it works for you. :)
