in reply to Indexing of Word documents

I have never used Win32::OLE, so I may be totally on the wrong track, but reading from a file and trying to write to the same file does not work properly most of the time. Perhaps all you need to do is to write to a copy of each file (and then do the necessary house cleaning, deleting old files and renaming new ones, or may be you want to do that before).
