    Bulk update of properties (Word 2002, SP3)

    We have thousands of documents which do not have any of the document properties fields completed.
    We are in the process of moving most of our documents into an EDRMS, and our management requires certain fields to be completed before the document is placed in the EDRMS.
    This would require the owners of the documents to open, update the properties and save the document, many times.
    Is there a utility that allows bulk update of some properties fields (eg. Author, Manager, Company) across many documents without requiring the user to open every document?
    Regards

    You could adapt and expand the code in <post:=557,242>post 557,242</post:> or <post:=562,959>post 562,959</post:> to suit your needs. It would require that the documents are placed in one folder.

    Thanks Hans,
    The code that you referred me to, when modified, will allow me to do most of what I need.
