I'm using office 365 and office 2016 on OSX, and have setup a sharepoint library with versioning enabled.
I would like to insert the version number of a word document inside the document.
You need to set Sharepoint up to generate a Label field, which it will then update with its version number on each check in.
You can then insert a DOCUMENTPROPERTY "Label" field in the Word document to display the content of the Label field.
The instructions are here:
Word for Mac is a cut-down version that does not have the QuickParts controls shown in that article.
The thing that usually catches people out is that the document must have already been checked in to Sharepoint, or the field you are looking for will not exist in the Word document.
There are also reports that a heavily-customised version of Sharepoint may not support this method.
Hope this helps

The sharepoint i'm using (which is the office365 online) doesn't seem to have the 'Information Management Policy Setting', which leads to the 'Edit Policy: Document' page.
Does this mean our sharepoint is a heavily customised version?
or are they under a different title/settings page?
