    Extract Word header table data to excel (closed word document)

    I have a table of file paths and file names for closed word documents. Here is an example:

    File Path File Name
    Q:\filepathexample\ docexample.doc

    In each of my closed documents there are 2 tables in the header. I need to extract the value of cell A1 in table 2 of the header, and paste it into my table in column C.

    I would prefer to do this without opening the word document, because I may be running this code for hundreds of entries in my table.

    Here's my code so far, I have defined the path and filename as strings, and the code it will loop through my table. I've had a little success with pulling data from tables in the body of the document, but I can't figure out how to access the tables in the header.

    Can you attach the word document?

    OK - I've got it solved, I finally found how to include the section and header as you set the object

    Like this:

    So now I can pull the cell that I want from the word document, but when I try to run my code for a large list of file paths it only does about first 50, and then 10 or 15 scattered ones after that from my list.

    Is there any way to speed my code up? I THINK most of the processing is coming from opening and closing those word files.
