    Listing properties of files (Word 2002)

    How do you list the properties of Word files in a directory, (eg Title, Author, Template), without opening up the Word documents?

    Thanks.

    What OS are you using?
    I known in 2K, Me and XP the "Comment" information of the Word document will appear in the "Comments" field of Windows Explorer. You will need to 'Right clibk' the 'Header bar of Windows Explorer and add a check mark to "Comments".

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I am using Windows XP.

    Yes, I can see the comments, title, author etc.. in Explorer. However, I need to view this information from Word XP. Do you know how view this information with VBA? (without opening the documents)?
