    Version vs. Revision (Win XP Word 2003)

    Hi,

    I have been trying to find a BuiltinProperty (Field Code) to be able to insert it into a document and then be seeing it on a printout, but I cannot find it.

    I can find the field code for revision, but not for version.

    Anyone who can give me a clue?


    Thanks in advance

    Regards

    Bjorn

    See How can I get Word to automatically display the document version number in the Header & Footer? on the Word MVP site, and please note the section titled "Why Versions should be avoided".

    Thanks Hans,

    Was afraid there was some "bug" since Microsoft haven't used this in SharePoint Portal Server and they also have trouble with versioning in SPPS.

    Can't understand why it should be dangerous to use Word's versioning as David Rado says in his article. But I have no doubt he is right.

    I had hoped that I should be able to control documents be version-numbering thus without using code.

    Anyway:

    Thanks a lot.

    I have left my templates now and gone into other tools. So it will be more seldome I will be using thsi excelent WOODY'S LOUNGE!

    Regards
    Bjorn
