Metadata and using CSV file

Jul 4, 2014 at 2:35 PM
Do you have any examples / documentation on using a CSV file and using this to upload extra custom metadata with the files being uploaded to the SharePoint document library?

I've tested upload using "Source Type = File System Folder" and it worked well. But I'd now like to be able to specify a list of documents in a .CSV file and upload them with associated custom metadata e.g. "Document Type" (i.e. "Letter", "Meeting minutes" etc.) I'd be very grateful if you could send me any info on this as it seems from the User Interface this is possible.

I would really like to be able to use a CSV file for the same thing.

When version 2.0 is installed you will find Examples directory showing how to import meta data. These use an excel spreadsheet as the data source but any OleDB source can be used; just change the connection string.
