How to retrieve File Summary Property.

P: n/a
Hello all,

I'm just wondering if it is possible to retrieve more information on a file.
For example a word file property contains a summary tab when you right-click
on it in the file explorer; and there are other informations like "Title",
"Subject", and "Author".

Thks,
Simon

Thanks Herfried. It sure looks quite complicated. I'll need some time to
look thru your source. However, if there are some other pointers, pls do
advice.

Simon,

You ask directly about the information in a file, not the information in the
filesystem.

That will be almost fore every file type different. For Office you can have
a look at Office automation integrated in VS 2005 in Net.

I hope this helps,

Thanks all. Guess that there is no easy way of doing this. I think I'll just
leave this feature out of my program. Hopefully VS2005 has an easier way of
doing it.
