Thanks Katherine.
Is this something that you could forward to the WordPlugin maintainer to have it added as feature?

I guess this brings up another question - Is there a way to get upgraded plugins without having to wait for each successive release of Greenstone?

For example - an updated WordPlugin or PDFPlugin when updates are made. Or, if someone in the community has updated these plugins and wants to make them available to others in the community, is there a simple way to install and use these upgraded plugins?

Thanks,
~Jay

Hi Jay

Yes, WordPlugin doesn't extract the number of pages.
You could try using EmbeddedMetadataPlugin to extract additional metadata from your documents.
I just tried using this with some word documents and it wasn't very consistent. I got FlashPix.PageCount extracted, but in a couple of cases it was 1, even though the document had more than one page.
But you could try it and see what you get.

Cheers,
Katherine

Re: [greenstone-users] Number of Pages in Word Documents Thanks for the assistance Felipe, but I have already tried this when trying to display the number of pages. I've tried [ex.NumPages], [NumPages], [ex.Pages], and [Pages]. All without success.

It appears that for all of my older Word documents, the number of pages information is not being extracted at all - I don't see the ex.NumPages in the GLI's Enrich tab for Word documents, but I do see a lot of other extracted metadata fields.

Are there any other ways to get the total number of pages in a Word document?

You need add of line {if}{[NumPages], <b>N□ pages:</b> [NumPages] p.} where de key to show the number of pages is [NumPages]

Hello,

Does the WordPlugin have a way of counting (extracting) the number of pages in a Word document? Or is there another method I could use to extract the number of pages in a Word document as part of the collection building process? I see that the PDFPlugin does this and would like this feature for the Word documents in my collection.


Thank you,
Jay Clark
