Changing Read-only recommended setting on several files at once

I want to use Microsoft's Remove Hidden Data tool on hundreds of Office files.  I can use the command line to do several of them at a time instead of opening them one by one.  After this is done, the documents all have the "Read-only recommended" option selected under Tools > Security. I want a way to either prevent this setting change or a way to change this setting back on several files at once instead of having to open each one at a time and change it manually?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could use vbscript or a word macro to do this.  Start by recording a new Word macro, and untick this option.  Then you will know what the code is to do that Tools --> Security command.
Then you can add this to the part before you save the file, and see how you go.

By the way, once you have that macro code, you could run it using VBS while each doc is open.

Daleoran,

I guess just delete the question....the first reply wasn't made for three weeks on this, so I;m guessing the author may have abandoned this idea.

I am not familiar with scripting, but I did find a program that does a batch of the docs for you and also is very customizable.  It is called Workshare Protect http://workshare.com/products/wsprotect/protect_family.aspx .

Thanks for your responses.
