Is it possible to populate data from SharePoint library into word?

New Contributor

Technicians at our company use print-outs in their day-to-day work. They might use prior printouts if they can't see the new revision # in SharePoint. Is there any way to auto-populate the SharePoint version # in a word file other than manually putting updating the version? Similarly, is it possible to show the version # in a column automatically without having to update?

 

Thanks

This is possible Today, but it can be a little tricky compared with how easy was in the previous versions of Word and SharePoint. A similar scenario using Document properties can be found here that might helo: https://andrewwarland.wordpress.com/2020/09/21/auto-populating-microsoft-word-templates-a-no-workflo...

Power Automate Flow this is something that could be achievable since you can modify with Power Automate the properties of a file and you can use later those properties in the document itself.
