SharePoint List Question for the Gurus. Dynamic Date Column from reading title of another column that has DDMMYY ?
Posted on 2011-10-23
I have a column that shows the titles of uploaded documents.
For example the document titles are respectively called BBP 102211 Friday .doc. ( where the date is DDMMYY )
I have another column ,a list item using the matching date of the document on the same row.
In this instance I would have to enter October 21 , 2011.
Is there a way to have the date read of the aforementioned document title and dynamically populate the date list item?
I have a library where I have the non techies upload their daily documents.
On a separate page I have a web part that displays the current document from that library for the day.
I can't filter by created date because they don't always upload/ create them in succession.
I can't use modified date because they sometimes re-modify them.
They are not computer literate and to teach them how to fill the date list item ( column ) which I use to filter the current file ,would make them all nervous and crazy!
Your expertise is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
