Import basic metadata from Microsoft Office documents

Fri Jul 11, 2014 7:06 am

Is it possible to read the "properties" of Microsoft Office files?
Particularly Title, Author, Document Number, Last Modified Date?
I'm using Office 2013.

By the way only the commercial editions can extract informations from recent Office formats and in any case those metadata are not extracted.

Hi davesav,
currently all text is extracted from MS Office documents and then inserted in the search index.
This is because the parser we use do not have the ability to extract individual fields from MS Office documents.
