Adobe Acrobat - Search and Replace Metadata

Hi experts

We have a few thousand PDFs with spelling mistakes in the metadata. For example in the keywords property:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<DATA>
     <Sourc>Market System</Source>
     <DocumentType>Marketing Doc</DocumentType>
     <FileName>Test1.PDF</FileName>
<DATA>

So the <Sourc> should be <Source>. This is just an example. Ideally we would have two pop-ups in the Acrobat action. The first would allow us to add a search string and the second the replace string.

Anyone have an idea how to accomplish this using Acrobat Actions / Javascript?

This is not possible because you do not have access to the XML data structure of the meta data in JavaScript. You would need to do this either in a custom plug-in, or an application that can extract the raw meta data and write it back. Both solutions would require custom software development.

Knowing something is not possible can also be a useful answer, thank you.
