The Sitecore Sharepoint connector is a Sitecore module for Sitecore 5/6 and support Sharepoint 2003/2007. It has the ability to setup a media connection for documents and images. How to display metadata for these documents is not described in the manual but it is in this Wiki article!

Setup a Sharepoint document library with some custom columns (fields). For example a "date" and "note" field. Make these fields visible and active in the list.

Choose the added media connection. Add a item based on the "Sharepoint.Fieldmap" master (Sitecore5). Choose the same name as the Sharepoint field you would like to connect with. Also use the same name for the "Sharepoint Field" field. Optionally choose a translation. This is not needed for text field. In this example we use a Datetime translation. You can add a custom translation .

Now we have to create or edit a Sitecore media template to display the connected fields. In this example we choose to edit one. Go to the "\templates\system\media\unversioned\file"\ template. Add a field with the same name as the Sharepoint field. Choose the correct data type.
