Under most circumstances, the revision number of an existing document will not need to be changed. That is, if the document is created new within the vault, Meridian PowerWeb will assign the correct revision number. When the document is revised in a workflow, its revision number is updated accordingly. Even if existing documents are imported into the vault, as long as accurate metadata is imported or application link data exchange is configured, the revision numbers of documents should be correct. But occasionally there are circumstances when the revision number of a document must be changed manually.
Regardless of the current value of the Revision property, revisions of the document will display in chronological order in the Revisions dialog displayed by invoking the Show Revisions command.
You must be granted the Change Revision Number Manually privilege to perform this action.
- Select the document that you want to change.
- In the Edit ribbon, in the Organize group, click Modify Revision Number. The Confirm Revision Number Change dialog box appears.
- Type a new revision number in New revision number and click Yes. The revision number is changed.
