Not really sure if this belongs here or not. I am importing references to pdf files and have a script set to add the files, extract text and copy the text in a context field for indexing. I also have scripts to insert the file size and creation date from the metadata. The problem I have is whoever did the last dvd master of the files "corrupted" the metadata. The pdfs go back to 2000 but when they were compiled into the dvd they somehow changed the create date to 01/19/2006. If I look at the metadata in preview/skim etc the dates are correct for the document but the Finder Get Info shows the 01/19/06 date. For example on one doc is dated 12/01/2002 if I look at properties in Preview but the Finder and Automater return 01/19/06. Is there anyway to read the actual metadata from the pdf and rewrite to the same file so that the Finder and/or Automator return the correct date?
