Determining the Name of a SharePoint Metadata Tag
Note: If the tags entered do not correspond to the metadata names of the appropriate SharePoint fields, erroneous or blank results are returned by queries (ex.: the content and summary can be blank and the author name missing).
To determine the metadata name of a column
In SharePoint, access the page where the list is displayed.
Click the column name for which you want to determine the metadata name.
In the Address box of the browser, locate the expression SortField=. The name of the column is the expression entered after =, in the SortField=Name form.
Example: In the following capture, the metadata name for the Name column is LinkFilename.
