We have many feature classes in our ArcSDE/Oracle database (9.3.1) whose metadata need to be updated.

I understand that we can export, edit and import metadata from ArcCatalog but it seems that this process needs to be conducted feature class by feature class. Correct?

I was wondering if there was a way to Export/Edit/Import metadata from multiple feature classes at the same time?

�??Ideally�?� �?? Would be nice to export the metadata of multiple selected feature classes into an Excel spreadsheet (for example), edit them quickly and re-import the metadata into ArcSDE.
