Script to replace text and graphics in Word documents

We have a large volume of Microsoft Word 2003 documents stored in a SharePoint installation. All of these documents refer to the company that created them by name. Many of them also have a logo for the company and a border in the header of the document.

The company is changing its name, logo and colors. We have come up with a list of phrases we need replaced. For example,

(c) CompanyX would need to be changed to (c) CompanyY

There are about 15 phrases.

One thing that makes it more complicated is that the phrase CompanyX 1234 in the BODY of a document might be replaced with different text than CompanyX 1234 in the HEADER of a document.

There are also URL replacements. Replace [url removed, login to view] with

In addition, instances of the logo graphic would need to be replaced with a new logo. And borders in the headers and footers that are currently black would need to be changed to orange (the exact colors will be provided.)

There is also a request to move one text phrase from the header of a document to the footer. This would not replace the entire footer, it would need to be added to the existing footer contents.

Also a request to make sure the footer is not in bold text (some of the documents currently have bold text in the footers, and shouldn't.)

The job is to write a script that can be applied to a folder of documents, and automatically do all the search/replace and formatting changes in each Word document contained inside that folder. We would provide the list of phrases/items that need replacing/changing, and sample documents.
