2007 and 2010 are a bit different for document properties. Try this. Insert, Quick Part, Field, Doc Property, and find your custom property here. It worked for me in 2010. .and no, I have not covered this in any of the books - had to check how to do it myself. Will add it to the next edition. Christine.

A bit of research points to needing to use SharePoint server to be able to do it, and I really don't want to have to resort to that. Does anyone know of another way? (Christine, do I need to get your book?!) Thanks, Sonja Important - This email and any attachments may be confidential. If received in error, please contact us and delete all copies.
