Need to Get Date a File was Modified

Need to Get Date a File was Modified

Need to Get Date a File was Modified

I need to get the date that certain files were last modified, the date that the folder would show. I have the complete path in a string variable. I need the date in any usable format (string, datetime, numberic (<g>), whatever).




RE: Need to Get Date a File was Modified


if file(yourstring)
  = adir(gaDirAray,yourstring)
  filedate = gaDirAray(1,3)   
  ? filedate

The fdate() function returns the last modification date of a file. See MSDN help for more info.
