ShaePoint 20102 How to add document type

Hello Expert

In the Interfaces, Rules and Reports library currently all the documents are in one big libray
and the separation is made by creating views that have Document Type as one of the document p[roperties. (Other porperties are Name, Title, IRR Dept, Description, and Cross Reference.) I now need to add another document type: DVT. How do I add another Docuemnt Type to the three existing so when a doc is uploaded the Document Type drop down has a new type that can be used for a new view?

Thanks

I'm assuming that this document type is not just a meta data field with 3 choices and we are talking about content types?
If so you create a new content type under site settings. Give it a name and make the parent content type 'document'.
Now go back to your document library settings and click advanced. Make sure 'allow management of content types' is on.
Now go back to the library settings and under the section content types you should see your 3 existing types. Simply add the new one you created earlier.

Hello expert,

Sorry I may have mislead you. No, it is not Content Types. It is a meta data field like Name,
Title, Description. One of the doument properties is Document Type. There are currently three. How do I add a fourth, please?

Thanks

Allen
Go to library settings and click on the column name. You should see 3 choices. Add a fourth
