comment Export document properties of every file in a folder
Thanks! For anyone else interested that's exactly what I was looking for. At USD 178 though, which is a week's salary here, I think I'll overcome my lazyness and write the script based on this: gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/… :) Those files come from a database of company documents; I want to check if word count and other indicators are useful as a proxy for time spent working per user, so that I can measure how much work/time different types of documents require and then do some business intelligence.

I removed that line in order to better comply with the guidelines and in line with your comment. I don't want to write a script myself but using something already written is ok. +Zoredache I think there should be better ways to implement it, that script opens a document each time. There are ways that don't involve loading Word 35k times!

This is NOT a product recommendation request. I don't know if this can be achieved with a cmd or powershell command. At any rate I would welcome a product recommendation answer like the answers that many, many SU questions receive. Besides, what constitutes a product? I asked for a tool. If I'm pointed to a premade script, does it count as a product? I think you are being over zealous. This is a legitimate question and its solution will prove extreamely valuable to many. Please leave it open.

I've downgraded to Office 2010, so I can't test to see how your proposal works out. It does sound as if it should work. I'm sorry.

comment How can I find out which parts of an Excel workbook are the biggest in size?
That's because Excel stores both the values and the formulas (vs just the values in the original). // I found out the instructions below had an error; with the corrected instructions I managed to find and fix the error.
