Automatically Extracting Metadata Values from Content Controls in Microsoft Word Documents (e-Forms) in FileHold 12

In FileHold 12, you can now create a “XML Node Extraction Rule” for a Microsoft Word document (or e-Form) that has content controls. After the document has been properly configured, the values in the content controls can be extracted into the metadata fields when the e-Form is added to FileHold.

Automatically Extracting Metadata from the Document Properties of any Document Type

The document properties of a document can be automatically extracted into metadata fields for a defined schema when an extraction rule for that file type is configured. Since all document types have properties, you can extract metadata from any type of document. This is useful for file types such as images where you can extract information such as the size of the picture, the camera type, exposure time, resolution, and so on directly from the file.
