Currently Being ModeratedFeb 3, 2011 3:02 AM (in response to Durero)As far as I know, no automator actions are delivered by Apple.
To get Scripts, you may go to my iDisk
and scan the contents of the folder :

I've found the scripts and I may give them a try.
Hopefully Apple will include Automator Actions in a future version of Numbers!MacBook Pro 17" 3.06GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Cinema Display 30"

I'd like to create an action that will enable me to list my file names in Numbers, file type and date of creation and modification.
The thing is that I have 900 documents (PDFs, ppt, xls, doc, etc...) contained in folders and sub folders, to list one by one in Numbers, with 4 columns: file name (just the name, not the extension, to be in column A), file extension (with the DOT before the extension name, to be in column B), creation date (to be in column E) and last modification date (to be in column F).
I'm very new to Automator and Apple Scripts, as I only tried long time ago once or twice and miserably failed, while aided by tutorials.

I can't advise on the details of the Automator workflows and AppleScript needed to extract the four columns of data.
But you will want the script to output in tab-separated or comma-separated format that can be imported into Numbers.
Numbers 3.0 has only minimal AppleScript support, so you can't push the data to it directly.
But importing tsv or csv should work nicely.
