    This sounds exactly like something I recommended to users on the Siemens BBSnotes. Fantastic way to use tools developed for one application in another.

    Do you also know you can use the same tools to convert all those files to "Available" status? If the VBA wasn't password protected, it would be easy to modify the code to make the files any status you needed.

    Scott, thanks for your response. Yes, that tool allows for many items to be changed such as if you want to add a custom property to all your files at once.
