Document Library - edit fields on Folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two document libraries in different sites - both have the same attributes, permissions, etc.  There are folders in the document library and in DocLib #1, I can "Edit Properties" and make changes to the various metadata fields.  In doclib #2, I cannot change the metadata information - I can't even see it during an edit, and edit in datasheet view shows my metadata fields as "read only".

    Eventhough I have content types set to allow multiple - I am only using the Document content type

    I had copied data from DocLib #1 to DocLib #2, all attributes transferred except metadata on the folders.

    I need to change metadata on folders in doclib #2


    Thank you.
