PDF files through workflow

Is it possible to link the data card variable to PDF file property and update these file properties as the PDF file goes through workflow.

For example, we would like to have “Approved By”, “Approved Date”, “Revision” as live metadata on the first page of the PDF document and update these automatically when the approver approves these documents through workflow.


Has anyone done this for Microsoft word documents. I know properties can be updated automatically in Microsoft word documents only when the document is opened.


Currently we are using only solidworks files for approval through workflow.


Could you please shed some lights?
