I have 10,000 PDF files in my drive and I need to capture the following metadata. I tried using wordstat but I'm unable to capture the following:

  1. File Name
  2. File Type
  3. Asset Type
  4. Asset Title
  5. Product Category
  6. Product Type
  7. Product Name
  8. Publisher

Please see the sample below. This was done manually and I have 9,800 remaining PDF files.

  • It might be possible to write a program using pikepdf or QPDF to do what you want. Also, I recommend you add the pdf tag to your question. Jan 16 at 20:22
  • Have you tried the Unix pdfinfo utility? You can use pdfinfo -meta <pdf file> to output PDF's metadata in XML. If you are on Windows, there might be alternatives to pdfinfo: stackoverflow.com/questions/19263643/… Jan 19 at 17:30

QuickPDF Library from foxit even with free Lite version could do this https://www.debenu.com/products/development/debenu-pdf-library/
