Word Document Database

By stavros41 ·
I would like to create a database that stores links or shortcuts to word documents on my Server. There is a folder that contains 20,000 word docs and they need to be added to a database. Is there a quick way of adding them, and if so which program should I use and how?

Word Docs DB

by twhaight In reply to Word Document Database

to get the file names I would do a dir //path/*.doc >//path/filename.txt

the //path/*.doc would be where the word documents are stored, and //path/filename.txt would be a text file that would be created.
Then you could import this file into yourtable.I don't know if there is any utility for getting the document titles from each file, which you may want of the purpose is something like an ASP page or cold fusion template for retrieving these documents from a web page.
