Can I add specifications to any file corresponding the folder columns?
I want to set up a foldertemplate with specific foldercolums like:
I can do this very easely, but i can't add data corresponding the columns to a file.
The goal is to have a list of different file-types like word, excel, pdf, ... in one folder. Those files have to contain the information corresponding the columns, e.g.:
"A.1.1 _ P090402/1 _ title of the original file _ 27/06/1950 _ CocaCola _ windows-name _ mail etc"
This seems to be impossible because every file is different: the one let you insert one of the specifications (but often not all...), the other doesn't accept changes (like pdf).
Do you know a work arround or a tweak?

Sorry, I do not think there are workarounds or tweaks.
Microsoft chopped off even file commenting function in Vista and 7.
Partial solution would be 3rd party tagging apps.
But they usually have their own GUI and store your "tags" in a separate file/database.
Check out this article.
There are more programs like that. They are usually discussed in threads where people asking for file commenting function in Win 7 (the way it existed in XP).
