Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have Sharepoint 2010 Foundation.
I've created Document Library and turned on Major and Minor Versioning.
I've modified view to show this version number on document list.
Now I want to create document template to show this version number in my footer.
How can I do this?

Please give me some detailed instructions.

Best Regards

    Save your Document
    Go to the Insert Tab
    Select Footer
    Select Edit Footer
    Position your cursor where you want the information to appear
    Go to the Insert Tab
    Select Quick Parts
    Select Document Properties
    Select Document Version
    Save your Document again.

    You will probably also want to put in the Doc Name and such.  You can do that all from the same area.

    Once you get it all set up, you can select the text and then hit ALT+F3, fill out the Create New Building Block form and click OK.

    Then you should be able to access your Footer and just go to Insert > Quick Parts and see your new creation at the Top of the List.

    Maybe you know why?
