Question about .Doc files

by crzymidgetdragon25 / February 14, 2008 2:12 PM PST


I was wondering what type of information can be taken from a word file? For example is it possible to obtain an ip address from the creator of this file? Thanks!

Programs to see what metadata was attached to word file?

Thanks, does anyone know programs that shows what metadata was attached to the doc file besides the document inspector in word 07? I'm looking for one that will allow me to see what's in the metadata. I appreciate your help.
