Write file properties of Windows file from Access application in VBA

I'd like to use my Access 2K application to write some text in the
file properties of a Windows file. The properties I'm talking about
are the properties you see whn you right click on a Windows file and
then click on Properites, then the Summary tab.
I want to be able to modify the Subject line and the Comments line in
particular.
I'm hoping someone can tell me how to do this.
Thanks,
lq

I'd check VBNet. If anyone knows how to do it, Randy Birch does.

Pieter,
Thanks. I looked there and is useful information on how to display the
Windows properties page but no information on how to write to the file
properties directly through code.

I didn't see exactly what you were looking for. You could try posting
your question in the VB NG and see if Randy has any idea. He's a
regular there. If not, someone else there might know.
