Hi

I have content type templates set up in my sharepoint library and in the footer includes my sharepoint meta data e.g. Title, version number.

 

I am trying to add the Issue date to the footer which is a calculated column and from a quick search I see SP calculated columns can not be added in quick parts.

 

Does anyone have a work around for this please?

This is my column I am trying to add in the footer

I did something similar by copying the value into a text column using a workflow that was set to run on create and modify.
