Explaining SharePoint Fields Found in Edit Properties

Here’s a quick run through of SharePoint Fields found in ‘Edit Properties’:

Name is the filename
Title is the title of the document that corresponds to Title in the file properties
SEDocID is the GUID for the item – that is how SharePoint locates everything – do NOT change it
SERevisionRoot is the GUID for SharePoint to know the revision – do NOT change it
SERevisedFrom is a GUID for SharePoint to know how to find the document that this one was revised from – do NOT change it
SE Status is the status (Released, Available) – use Life Cycle Assistant to change it – you should not change it here
SEStatusUser is the person that last made a change to the status – do NOT change this
SELastKnownLocation is the last place it was opened and saved – Do NOT change this: SharePoint uses the DocID to locate it if it can’t find it here and then once you open and save, it updates this field
SELinkData provides a list of the documents that the assembly has in it – typically I look here if someone is opening an assembly and saying that they are not getting the right part – this will show the GUID of the part it is looking for and you can then do properties on the part to see if it is the right GUID – I only see this when someone has deleted a PartA.par and created a new on PartA.par thinking SharePoint uses the name – it does not – it uses the GUID – you have to then do a replace in rev manager – do NOT change this field here


SERevisionLevel is an internal way for SharePoint to know what rev level – do NOT change this
SEModelType – do NOT change it – any of the ones that start SE are internal ones used by the system
Material is the material (you need to have this mapped to SharePoint)
Document Number should be your part number no extension so 123.par is 123 and this corresponds to the windows properties (can change this here)
Revision Number is the Revision Number A, B, C or 1, 2, 3 and will use _ or – depending on your settings in options – this corresponds to the windows set up (use Life Cycle Assistant to change this)
