uploading documents with metadata in sharepoint

uploading documents with metadata in sharepoint

uploading documents with metadata in sharepoint

private void UploadFileToSharePoint(string strInputFileName, string sDocLibraryName) {
SPWeb site = SPContext.Current.Web;
        SPList myList = site.Lists[sDocLibraryName];
        string destFileUrl = myList.RootFolder.ServerRelativeUrl + @"/New.txt";
        site.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
        FileStream fileStream = File.Open(strInputFileName, FileMode.Open);
        SPFile newFile = site.Files.Add(destFileUrl, fileStream, true/*overwrite*/);
        newFile.CheckIn("File added");
        SPListItem item = newFile.Item;
        Hashtable ht = new Hashtable();
        ht.Add("Employee", employee.Text.ToString());
        ht.Add(" Description", Description.Text.ToString());

        ht.Add("Status", Status.SelectedIndex);
        item.File.CheckIn("File with metadata");

and i am using this function to call UploadFileToSharePoint(@"C:\check.txt", "Project Status"/* name of Dc Library*/);

The problem is that file is getting uploaded but it's not attaching with the metadata ..can someone please review the code and tell me what's going on.


RE: uploading documents with metadata in sharepoint

Perhaps a dumb question: Are you sure the metadata columns already exist is the doclib? I believe you should add the file and the metadata at the same time, not one after the other.
