Changing Document Properties
Excel helps you organize and identify your i les by using document properties , which are
the details about a i le. Document properties, also known as metadata , can include infor-
mation such as the project author, title, subject, and keywords. A keyword is a word or
phrase that further describes the document. For example, a class name or document topic
can describe the i le’s purpose or content.
Document properties are valuable for a variety of reasons:
Users can save time locating a particular i le because they can view a document’s
properties without opening the document.
By creating consistent properties for i les having similar content, users can better
organize their documents.
Some organizations require Excel users to add document properties so that other
employees can view details about these i les.
Five different types of document properties exist, but the more common ones used
in this topic are standard and automatically updated properties. Standard properties
are associated with all Microsoft Ofi ce documents and include author, title, and subject.
Automatically updated properties include i le system properties, such as the date you
create or change a i le, and statistics, such as the i le size.
To Change Document Properties
The Document Information Panel contains areas where you can view and enter document properties. You
can view and change information in this panel at any time while you are creating a workbook. Before saving the
workbook again, you want to add your name and course information as document properties. The following steps
use the Document Information Panel to change document properties.
