eDocs Reporting Question

P. Smith

Recommended Posts

I have the need to create a metadata report of .DOCX files that each individually contain an embedded/inserted Excel table.  In this case, each of these Excel tables contains its own set of metadata that also needs to be reported.  Intella lists these Excel tables (in list view) as separate .XLS spreadsheets and indicates them as attached to a parent file (much like an email); so one .DOCX really consists of the two separate files (.DOCX & an embedded .XLS). 

When I create a metadata report for an email with an attachment, it will show the parent email w/ content and metadata as well as its child attachment w/ content and respective metadata all in a contiguous manner.  I would like to do the same here, but the same reporting does not appear to work for document files w/ "attached" or child files embedded within.  Is this something where I would have to create a full metadata report of each item individually and then manually merge parent file PDF pages with its direct child PDF pages?

Hi P. Smith,

You could try enabling this setting when exporting. That should include the embedded item. The only issue with that approach is that it won't include the 'metadata' of the embedded items. If you need a full report on embedded items, the embedded items will need to be included separately, then maybe merge the PDFs as you say.
