How to batch copy file Descriptions?

Hi, I want to select multiple files or folders, then I want to batch copy their descriptions to clipboard.
Can this be done using functions ?
Thanks !

It could be done using scripting.

The easiest non-scripting method would be to use Tools > Print/Export Folder Listing, which can put your choice of file display columns into the clipboard. But that will work on the whole folder (and optionally sub-folders), so you'd need to filter the output to remove the things you don't want.

Thanks Leo, I later came across some post which gave some instructions on using scripting to get metadata. Consider this solved.
