    Get doc property WITHOUT opening the doc (ALL)

    Hi

    Is it possible to read/get document (custom or built-in) properties of a WORD document without opening the document?

    Thanks.

    Yes: Microsoft has a COM component that lets you edit document properties without actually opening the document. You can download it (for free) from Dsofile.dll lets you edit Office document properties without Office in Visual Basic .NET 2003 and in Visual Basic .NET 2002. Despite the mention of .NET, it works in VB6 and VBA too. The download comes with demos and sample code, study this carefully to see how to use it.
