what is the best way to populate a field with DWDOCID so that they can view it in a result list?

Create a new field of type INT. Call it what you like. Create an AutoIndex workflow to iterate the cabinet using the DWDOCID as the match code. When matched, write the DWDOCID to your custom field. For new documents, you can run the Autoindex job periodically with a filter where the custom field is empty, or if you are on DocuWare 7, use instant Autoindex to populate the field immeidately on storage.

I think you would need Workflow Manager to do this. Just need to create the workflow for newly stored documents and have it fill in the docID field you create for the cabinet.

  1. Create the field in the cabinet. Call it say "Document ID"
  2. Create a workfow that starts on new documents that "Document ID" is EMPTY
  3. in the workflow add Assign Data Module and assign field Document ID with Arithmetic Expression
