Metadata in Microsoft Word Documents

Do you know that Word documents can contain lots of information about you, your organization, document history and editing history? This information is called metadata. If you email a document to someone, they can see much of this data, and it could reveal much more than you want them to know. Payne Consulting Group offers more information about metadata and how to get rid of it at their website. In addition, you can download a free utility called Metadata Assistant to clean much of the metadata from Word documents.
