Description

Contains properties used by Xerox Document Library software, which organizes documents into virtual "cabinets" on a computer; property sets can be applied to cabinets created by Xerox FreeFlow software.

Properties contain descriptive information about documents. When a Library Search is performed, documents can be selected based on their properties, which makes finding documents easier. This helps make large databases of documents more manageable.

SET files are created by the Library Administration Tool, which is part of Xerox FreeFlow Software package. To create a new Property Set, click the "Cabinets and Properties" tab, then select "New Property Set" from the toolbar.
