I'm trying to work out a way to display the contents of the version column from SharePoint (i.e. the value that changes every time a file is checked in) as a field (or something similar) inside of a Word document.
Ideally, I'd like to know how to configure SharePoint so I could click something like "Insert > Quick Parts > Document Property > Version", and it would include the version in the document. The goal is to make it easier for someone to correlate a printed version of a document with the version history of SharePoint.
I have been able to add editable text columns to the Document content-type and have them show up as document property quick parts. I've also been able to add a calculated column which gets the version as a text string… however this calculated column isn't showing up in Word as a document property. (Perhaps I'm missing a setting on the calculated column)
