Excel helps you organize and identify your ﬁ les by using document properties , which are
the details about a ﬁ le. Document properties, also known as metadata , can include such
information as the project author, title, or subject. Keywords are words or phrases that
further describe the document. For example, a class name or worksheet topic can describe
the ﬁ le’s purpose or content. Document properties are valuable for a variety of reasons:
• Users can save time locating a particular ﬁ le because they can view a document’s
properties without opening the workbook.
• By creating consistent properties for ﬁ les having similar content, users can better
organize their workbooks.
• Some organizations require Excel users to add document properties so that other
employees can view details about these ﬁ 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 Ofﬁ ce documents and include author, title, and subject.
Automatically updated properties include ﬁ le system properties, such as the date you
create or change a ﬁ le, and statistics, such as the ﬁ le size.
Excel allows you to assign
properties by clicking

button arrow in the
Panel and then clicking
You can assign custom
properties, such as

can create your own
