Default How to update Contents tab in the Adv. document properties dialog? Problem with multiple languages.

Hi everyone,




I've extensively looked for a clue regarding my problem but could not find anything.



How can I manipulate, update, delete the content of the Contents pane in the properties of a word document?

I've started my document from one of my company's template, which was in French, and had to translate it to English. After modification, the content of the Contents tab of the Advanced document properties dialog is showing the old french title and the old french TOC.

Is there a way to manipulate that part of the document??

The closest post I could find to this question is this unanswered post:https://www.msofficeforums.com/word/...roperties.html


Thank you for your support.

Default Content of app.xml

Just to add some more information: the old content can be found in the APP.XML file of the DOCX.

It's seems to be linked to the extended-properties of the document somehow (namespace)? Or maybe to the template itself?

Code:

Look under Quick Parts > Document Properties and see if the properties are listed there. If so, insert in the document, make your changes, and delete from the document.


Also look under the Summary and Custom tabs of the dialog you are showing.


These likely were inserted by SharePoint. (This is a guess, not experience.)

Doug Robbins or someone else who works more with xml on the Microsoft Answers forum might be able to provide more insight.

If you post there, please provide a link to this thread in the new post and one to the new post here.

I'm not sure how to force a rebuild of that info but I would try making a copy of the app.xml file and wiping the contents of the TitlesOfParts so it is just an empty xml element. Perhaps this will rebuild automatically when you reopen the document.

I've tried that method, and surprisingly it works kind-of well.
After wiping the content of the TitleOfParts and HeadingPairs nodes, Word complains that it cannot read some information on opening and offers you to "restore" information. Once saved, the Contents pane is cleaned.

Thanks a lot.


On a side note, I think it was indeed inserted by Sharepoint. But my knowledge of that is pretty lame :/
I will post this (resolved but not understood) issue on the Microsoft Answer forum.
Thanks to all of you!

Suggestion...
Post it on the Answer's forum as a discussion rather than as a question. That way you will not get input from "Microsoft Agents" and "Independent Agents" who are paid by MS to give quick responses to questions but often do not have much knowledge of Word. (Microsoft thinks this gives a better customer experience. They may be right.) MVPs will usually respond to discussions.
