Modify Descriptive Information for Document Moved

       This article describes a method for library users to
modify the descriptive information for the document moved from a
folder to another folder.

      A library user may wish to move a document from a folder to
another folder.  In addition to the move operation, the library user
may wish to change the descriptive information associated with the
document. No mechanism exists in the Document Interchange
Architecture to support this function.

      This article provides a mechanism whereby a library user can
change the descriptive information associated with the document
moved.

      This capability is provided by defining the syntax and the
semantics of a MODIFY-DATA operand in the MOVE command. Library users
can specify the descriptive information modified via this operand.
