Question about available columns in SharePoint view creation
Posted on 2011-09-13
Using the "Shared Documents" document library installed with SharePoint 2010 Foundation as the basis for my question, where do the available columns come from in the "Columns" section of the create view process?
When I look at the document library settings for "Shared Documents", the default columns shown as "currently available" are Title, Created By, Modified By, and Checked Out To. However, if you begin the process of creating a new view, there are a number of other columns available to display on the new view, like (if choosing to based new view on Standard view) Check In Comment, Content Type, Copy Source, etc.
Where are these columns configured/associated with the standard view, i.e. how does SharePoint know to provide these particular ones to me as choices in creating a standard view of a document library?
Thanks in advance.
