Possible to extract PDF properties in ProjectWise?

in windows if you bring up properties on a PDF file there is a PDF tab that shows date created and some other document properties.  They aren't standard windows metadata.  Is there a way to extract that info anyway and put it in the file properties in ProjectWise?

  • Hi Kevin,

    PDF file propeties cannot be extracted because it cannot be read by the structured COM Storage:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa378734%28VS.85%29.aspx

    From the ProjectWise Administrator Help. These are the File Properties that can be extracted from files that are structured COM storages, such as:
    Microsoft Word documents (DOC)
    Microsoft Excel spreadsheets (XLS)
    Microsoft Power Point presentations (PPT)
    Microsoft Projects (MPP)
    Microsoft Visio drawings (VSD)
    MicroStation V8 DGN files

    PDF and DWG cannot be extracted. There is a CR already in the system and I can add your name to it if you would like.

    HTH,
