Storing Document Details in the Properties Box

The Windows file system keeps track of details about each file: its size, when it was created, and when you last modified it, for example. Windows allows you to store extra details about Office file types; these properties include the author's name, a title and subject for the file, and comments or keywords you can use to search for documents later. A Custom properties sheet lets you track more than two dozen built-in categories or add your own.

Maintaining file properties takes a fair amount of up-front work, but it can have a profound payoff, especially in a networked office where many users share documents.
