Change a file properties

3 posts in this topic

is there a easy way to change the summary properties of a file or even better, the file details like in VISTA to change the company info, tag info, etc?

I am working to develop a script that can read the file properties and I need an option to be able to details of them but I don't see an easy way to do so.

Thanks!

Just a tip on using the above mentioned code (not the code really, but the nature of the files you are reading):

I just used this in one of my scripts to get the file info. It worked great to pull the info. The problem was, I had to add a few "backup" checks, as not EVERY file has EVERY tag filled. So be sure to add error & blank (if $x == "" then...) checking, otherwise, you may get some strange results. Please keep in mind this is a problem with the FILES YOU MAY BE READING and NOT the code itself.
