    Handle Word object hang ups.

    I am processing a large amount of word documents. There will be some that hang due to corruption when calling, wdDoc = GetObject(wdFileName). Since word hangs the code hangs at that step. There is no error that the code can see, so on error resume next doesn't work. How can I skip that file, kill the WinWord process, and continue processing the rest of the documents?

    Use md5 algorithm to calculate hash of each file, store it separately, and skip the files that match the hash (corrupted files).

    The word documents don't become corrupt, they are stored with errors. There must be a way to timeout if the getObject call takes too long.
