The Problem with Title field in SharePoint

Filed under: SharePoint — kartickapur @ 2:42 am

I have noticed two big problems while dealing wiht Title field in SharePoint:

1. The Title field cannot be deleted or made into a lookup field. It can only be renamed
2. If you happen to rename the Title field in the base content type ‘Item’ you cannot change it back. Although I did find an interesting article in Amar Galla’s blog http://amargalla.com/blog/?p=59

  1. You could use a program called WSSListConfigurator to modify (and delete) the title-field… I have used it alot, and it works… You can also use it for the “lookup” function, and select different coloums that “standard” sharepoint doesn’t support….
