SharePoint doesn´t update the documents propertys inside the documents ( inside the side foot ).
The problem only ocour with documents that are locked with document protected form.

Tie a unlock and relock to an event on the document. For instance, in The Document_Open event, unprotect the document, update the property and then reprotect the document.

The code that I use to protect a document is attached. I would call the subroutine - do my updates and then call the subroutine again.

Sub proToggleFormLock()
'Toggle the form Protection on and off

If ActiveDocument.ProtectionType = wdAllowOnlyFormFields Then
    ActiveDocument.Unprotect Password:=" "
Else
    ActiveDocument.Protect Password:=" ", NoReset:=True, Type:= _
        wdAllowOnlyFormFields
End If
End Sub
