(my example is called Sample2003 and was created in Word 2003). After you choose a file
to upload and click OK, the Properties dialog box for the document item will prompt you
to enter data in the required field (as you can see in Figure 8.12). Notice that Word 2003

don’t do that.

during file upload
When you upload a file that requires its fields to contain data, the file will be in a checked-out
state (unavailable to everyone but you) until you ill in the required fields. Basically, the
document can be uploaded, but it’s not considered “done” and ready to be seen by anyone else until
all the necessary fields are filled out.
