How to extract author from a document without opening it?

Would anyone know of a way to extract the ‘last saved by’ field from a document (Word, Excel, PDF) without opening it? I tried the Details tab from the document’s Properties, but seems like the ‘last saved by’ field cannot be right clicked to copypaste.

Hello @lopez.mj.

Do you need to know only author of the document? Or some other details?

To be precise, the ‘last saved by’ name is the value I want and that’s it!

Can you please send a screenshot where exactly you see this field? Are you talking about files on Sharepoint or OneDrive?

OneDrive, but open to using SharePoint if needed so.

Thank you. So I can advise to use OCR action in this window, save result in string variable and then use in your recording.
