Batch rename Word (.doc) files based on first line of text
Posted on 2008-11-20
I have recently recovered a large amount of "lost" data from a drive, but was unable to recover the files with their proper names. (The recovery software just named them 0000A0A0.DOC, 0000A0A1.DOC, 0000A0A3.DOC...)
There are over a thousand documents, so I would like to rename the file with text extracted from the document itself. I was thinking, from the first line of text. This would making sorting much easier.
Does anyone know if this is possible with a batch file or something?
