Retrieve File Properties/Attributes


A

Alan

Hopefully again this is not a hard question and someone has been through this
before ... I have a piece of code that searches for all executable files
within a folder and returns me the Name, DateCreated, DeateModified, Version
etc,

However these files have an attribute/property calles 'Product Name'

Can anyone suggest how I can retrieve this information and update my table
accordingly

I am using FileSystemObjects however have searched here and over the net and
cannot find a way to retrieve this particular attribute/property

Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated

From what I know you need to use the DSO OLE file method, and you'll need to
install DSO. You can get it at http://support.microsoft.com/?id=224351

Here a post that covers the subject (you can google to find more

For basic scripting file properties you can take a look at
