Change file properties across multiple files

I can't find a tool that will allow me to change a custom property (in a
drawing file for example) across multiple files. Not ADD a custom property,
but change it. I've found several that can add properties. A typical
drawing package for me could be upwards of 30 individual drawing files. If
those all change status (from 'To Be Approved' to 'Production' for example),
I believe that I have to change that property one by one in each file--not
very productive.
Does such a tool exist? Thank you in advance,

yes, this tool DOES exist. you might even have it already. the one that good ol' bob z. uses doesn't allow you to change a property. you have to delete the property first and then add it back in. a pain yes, but it does work.

Two things that might help:
1.) "Propagator", available at
2.) Macro available at -- This one allows copying info to active SW doc from another. Sometimes I'll build a scratch template SW part to hold properties and copy to other parts.
