Map Word document field data to WSS columns

  Asked By: Wyatt    Date: Jan 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2020

we have to get thousaunds of Office 2003 documents uploaded to WSS. Is there
any way to get the document metadata from doc header and footer to populate in
WSS columns automatically, please?

For example, if we have a field in the header Valid Until: 1/1/2010, and a
Valid Until column in WSS, how do we map these? Any tool that can do this and
mass upload?

The mass upload could be accomplished (perhaps piecemeal) via drag/drop in
Explorer; however, I seem to recall that Bamboo Solutions has a tool that
can do this (though it might just be between libraries).

As for the data  extraction, I would think you'd need to write a custom event
receiver or workflow with Visual Studio, using COM interop to get the
document information.
