Is it possible to import documents into a specific folder (FoldersFiledIn property) using CEBI? Thanks

No, that is not a feature of CEBI currently, it will add all content as unfiled.

Hi Greg,
If I import hundreds of thousands of documents, how can I move the unfiled documents into folders? is it possible to automate this process through script? Thanks

You can create an asynchronous subscription with an action event handler to file documents to a specific folder. An example can be found in the knowledge center.

We don't have time to develop a custom application. Can I select multiple documents and use Bulk Operation? Under actions tab, containment actions, and select file in folder OR under script tab, you can run a vbscript? I'm using Filenet P8 5.1

You can use the "Content Engine Query Builder" in FEM to run a search for the documents in question and file them in a folder. In the "Content Engine Query Builder", go to the Actions tab and in the "Containment Actions" section check the "File in Folder" option and select the folder you want to file the documents into.

Thanks Greg. This is the best option so far. Is there a limit on how many documents I can move to folder using CEQB?

For this Bulk Import tool, can the working folder be on a network drive? Currently we are storing our documents on a different server.

I'm not sure about any hard limit on the number of documents in a CEQB search as these limits are usually memory limitations in FEM, but a good tip is:

 
Set the Maximum to Display value to 0 and check the "Process All Results" checkbox. This way, the script runs against all the documents returned from the query, but doesn't cause out of memory problems since no results are displayed.
 
Another good hint is to try a smaller result set, say 10k and then gradually increase in CEQB.
 
Yes, the working directory for CEBI should be ok on a network drive.
