Do you have any experience using CallBackFilter with all events which be fired when you open / save / close an office file ?

I'm trying to catch one event when the office file is saved or closed. But office creates many temporary files and events are fired for these temporary files. Any idea to not filter these events ?

Office saves files by writing data to temporary files and then renaming them to .doc(x), .xls(x) etc. So depending on what exactly you want to accomplish (pick the saved file or modify contents when it's written) you need to track renaming operation or writing operation.

I had not considered to get Office files changes using renaming operation to fire a writing operation.
