I have a GUID which belongs to an item (probably document or some folder, not confirmed that's why I am looking for this solution) inside a particular library. Is it possible to get document name etc. using GUID via STSADM?

Or is it possible to do using custom solution? SharePoint is 2007.

I am assuming you're referring to listitem Unique ID.

As per quick glance at the list of STSADM operations this cannot be done.

Your options to fetch the item are:

  • Set up powershell on the farm (one of the guides) and write a PS script
  • Write custom solution using SSOM

I went on to directly query (this is officially not recommended by Microsoft) table "AllDocs" which contain all documents. The first column "Id" in this table contain GUID.
