Document properties not copied correctly by workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a workflow which, when a document is added/updated in a 'Source' document library, the document is copied to a 'Destination' library.

    I have created custom columns (Choice, checkboxes) that match, in both of the libraries.

    If I upload a .doc file, everything works fine, and in the 'Destination' library the metadata is displayed correctly, with the choices separated by semicolons e.g. A; B; C

    However, if the document is a .docx, then the metadata is displayed as 'ABC'. If I try to edit the properties, then all the checkboxes are blank.


    Hopefully this image will help explain the situation .

  • Can you perhaps post your code of how you upload these documents to the destination library?

  • They are just copied using the 'Copy list item' action in Sharepoint Designer.
