Manage Business Data Dynamically in a Document Library
This paper walks the user through the process of creating a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 document library in which business data is linked between Microsoft Office Word 2007 documents and the library. Because the data is linked, one can use the library to make business decisions that are based on data in the documents without having to open the documents. Any changes that one makes to the data are automatically reflected in both the document and the library, regardless of which place one makes the changes. One can organize the documents based on the data, generate reports, and even update the data - all in the document library.
