Tomas, I´m sending you the program as a zip file.

Let me explain how dows it works.

1- just open a cmd window and go to collectyour_collectimport folder (I
assume you have documents there. If not go to where they are!)
2- Run the following command: "dir /b /s >item.dir". This will generate a
txt file containing all folders with images and texts inside them. Close cmd
window.
3- Copy indexador.exe in collectyour_collectimport folder.
4- Run indexador.exe.
5- The program lets you add 4 metadata to your documents. The first one is
Title and I´t cannot be disabled. If you wish to add more metadata simply
enable the check box and write the metadata name.
6- The program begins reading item.dir and will use last part of the path of
each line as the document title. Suppose you have the following item.dir:

importbook name 1image1.tif
importbook name 1image1.txt
importbook name 1image2.tif
importbook name 1image2.txt
importbook name 1image3.tif
importbook name 1image3.txt
importbook name 2image1.tif
importbook name 2image1.txt
importbook name 2image2.tif
importbook name 2image2.txt
importbook name 3image1.tif
importbook name 3image1.txt
importbook name 3image2.tif
importbook name 3image2.txt
importbook name 3image3.tif
importbook name 3image3.txt

The last part of the path for the first line is "book name 1" so the program
assume that this is the document title. Obviously, you can edit metadata
value. When you press start button the program read item.dir until it finds
that the path has changed, this indicates that "book name 2" starts. So,
title changes too. And this repeats until end of file.You will find inside
each folder a file named hhmmssn.item (the name is the creation time of the
file) that contains metadata and a list of pages descriptions.

Well, hope this help you. Let me know if you have any problem.

Hello Diego,

fantastic ! That is the solution I was looking for ! Please allow me to
thank you for developing this cool program. Without it, using PagedImage
plug would be much harder for me.

Please send me the program to following emails: tomas.fiala@ulib.sk ;
tom.fiala@gmail.com. (I hope that the filters will not delete the
attachment) or just upload it to http://rapidshare.com/ a send me the link.

Again, big thanks !

Sincerely,

Tomas Fiala
