Word document default name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I am making some functionality that is related to 'Save & Send'. And I need to know exact E-mail subject when I click 'Send as attachment' (or 'Send as Pdf' or 'Send as Xps').

    One important notation - Word document is new and unsaved to local disk.

    So, no problems with attaching original document because E-mail subject will be like 'Document1', 'Document2' etc. but if I am trying to attach as Pdf or Xps then issues appears:

    1. If attached to Word document template (in our case Normal.dotx) has built in property 'Title' not empty then E-mail subject will be like this 'Title' property

    2. If this 'Title' property is empty then E-mail subject will be like part of first Word document text line

    And I don't want search and parse any document text. Is there a way to point E-mail subject without using first document line like a default? I tried set 'Title' property for document but it does not work.

  • Hi Andrey,

    According to your description, I think your issue is more like an Word end-user question. I would suggest you repost the issue on Word Answers Forum. The corresponding link is: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/word

    The experts there are more familiar with the usage of Word and may give you more suggestions or workarounds.
