reading file date & time of EXE reading file date & time of EXE JCreamerII (MIS) (OP) 4 Dec 08 11:29 I played with this awhile ago, but lost track of the code to find the file date, time & size of an EXE file. Thanks,Jim C. RE: reading file date & time of EXE JockMullin (MIS) 4 Dec 08 14:07 Hi, JimI usually use the adir() function.Here is an example cribbed from the NG: LOCAL aName, aSize, aDate, aTime, aAttr, nLen, i nLen := ADIR( "*.EXE" ) // Number of EXE files in this directory IF nLen > 0 aName := Array( nLen ) // make room to store the information aSize := Array( nLen ) aDate := Array( nLen ) aTime := Array( nLen ) aAttr := Array( nLen ) FOR i = 1 TO nLen ? aName[i], aSize[i], aDate[i], aTime[i], aAttr[i] NEXT ELSE ? "This directory has no .EXE files" ENDIF(I know, I should have put those cute code delimiters to make it look nice)Jock RE: reading file date & time of EXE JCreamerII (MIS) (OP) 4 Dec 08 15:04 JOck,Thanks for the reply, I'll try it tomorrow. Also I don't do cute any more, looked great as is.Thanks,Jim C.
