Get excel book to show author on mouseover ?

I have seen excel files in the past - work related that show the authors name on mouseover. I have created an excel document & want it to do the same - How do I do it ?

I meant when mousing over the .xls file in its parent folder. At moment it says Type,Size & date modified. Am sure in past I have seen them with the authors name too ?

My name is already in that, but still doesn't appear when I mouse over the file. It isn't essential I just wondered. Maybe something to do with my user rights set by network admin perhaps? I dunno. I haev the original draft on my home pc so will have a go on that.
