dealing with large numbers of documents, it is always more efficient to use
GetNextDocument. It is amazing how much faster the script will run using
GetNext rather than GetNth. Case in point: I used to run a script on several
thousand documents that took around 15 minutes to run. On occasion the script
would not finish because the server document had the Max Script execution time
set to 15 minutes. I went into the code and changed any instance of
GetNthDocument to GetNextDocument. That's the ONLY change I made to the
script. Since that change, it takes about 30 seconds to run! Wow. Throw the
GetNth out of your vocabulary, and ALWAYS use GetNext.

For i = 1 To dc.count
?Do whatever you need to do with the document
Set doc = dc.GetNextDocument(doc)
'Watch your code scream through the docs!
