Do you know how to get the SharePoint document version in Word?

​We are always disappointed when adding version information to a Word document. When you use the Word version you get a number that indicates the number of times the document has been saved and not a proper version number.

It is possible to get the number into Word for the version of the document on the SharePoint document library.

Follow the guide here: http://www.bryansgeekspeak.com/2009/03/moss-2007-show-sharepoint-version.html

Note: This also works in SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010.

Figure: Good example, you see the formatted SharePoint version number
