It was back in 2006 that I took a Virtual Campus course "Creating and Maintaining Metadata Using ArcGIS Desktop" and I think in that course I learned a trick to use python to update the contact info in metadata files. I think the course gave a list of variables that you could access with this trick. I think I extended that to access a couple other variables in the metadata files and loop through folders. But I can't get a reminder looking back at the course because it's been retired.
Is this still possible in ArcDesktop 10.2 and this new Item Description standard?
