Verify Date Modified for text files

Verify Date Modified for text files

How can I check to see if the Date Modified in for a specific file name is yesterday...

For example:
File Name Date Modified
Test3.txt 2014-07-28
Test2.txt 2014-05-08
Test1.txt 2014-01-01

LAST modified date for files starting with Test is 2014-07-28

RE: Verify Date Modified for text files

Here is an exzmple of retrieving the last modified date using the file scripting object (make sure you have its library checked in "references").

Should be an easy thing to compare it with DateAdd() using day and -1.

RE: Verify Date Modified for text files

Or use DateDiff() passing "d" as the interval.
