So You have your new Company Policy Manual, or your new Login Procedures document, or whatever. You've seen the power of Microsoft SharePoint when it comes to managing document versioning and you can't wait to get started. But wait, you know that this document will not exist solely in SharePoint. It will be printed, faxed, emailed, scanned, converted to PDF and so forth. So you are going to want to have the document version (or "Rev" as some folks call it) printed on the document somewhere. The problem comes when trying to keep that bit of text synced up with the SharePoint version number.
For those of you who have worked with SharePoint metadata in Word, you have probably discovered that you can use the Quick Parts button to inject document properties, including some SharePoint columns. However, columns that are modified by the system such as calculated columns and Version are not available. So what to do?
