    Want to extract document metadata and doc info via a script

    ipolans

      I'm not a Javascript nor Java programmer so I might be missing one or more steps.

       

      Looking at the Javascript info I have I see the following code:

       

      var r = new Report();

      r.writeText(this.metadata);

      r.open("myMetadataReportFile");

      save("/c/myreport.pdf"));

       

      The code doesn't seem to be working when run from the console. If I execute "this.metadata" I get the information that I expect. This suggests that the problem is with report creation and or saving the document.

       

      I haven't yet figured out how to get information out of the Doc Info dictionary.  This is another need.

       

      NOTE: In both cases (XMP and DocInfo) we're adding CUSTOM metadata.

       

      Ideally I'd like to save both sets of information XMP and DocInfo as XML . This way we can run a comparison between the two.

       

      Finally whatever code I end-up with needs to be able to run in the Action Wizard over about 10,000 files. If the input file is "file.pdf" the output should be "file.xml"

       

      Thanks.
