Havent seen one, but their are programs which will report on the document
information fields into an Excel spreadsheet (or just a CSV file) which can
be edited and then used to update the information in the PDF files. Or you
could predefine the code so it always put certain keywords into the Doc Info
Fields. (Some example code wouldn't be to hard to put together).

You could probably build some smarts in a VB program (or C etc) that put
prefilled the Doc Info fields based on filename or directory or such like.

If you need more info just let me know.
