Newbie to editing opf file

I have a bunch of lit books that are missing the author when I open them up in MS Reader and it's starting to bug me enough that I'm going to try to do something about it.

I know I'm supposed to edit this in the opf file so I used ConvertLit to break out my lit file, opened my opf file using Notepad and really have no idea what to do with the file from there on. I did a search on google but couldn't find much info, if anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

You'd need Reader Works Publisher to put them back together into LIT's IIRC. Probably easier to load them into Calibre and change the meta data there.

That part puzzles me, I do have Calibre and even after updating the meta data to show the author, when I load the file in MS Reader the author is still missing on the cover page and in the library view.
