Insert File Path in Summary Properties

Posted on 2010-01-05
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I am looking for some code that will allow mass updates to the "comments" field in the Summary Properties for MS Office and Acrobat PDF files. I have a flat file with all of the full-paths of the files (one per line).
I need to loop through the flat file and insert the full-path value in the "Comments" field of each file's properties. I am not a programmer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  The files would be PDF and MS Office extensions only.
