I wish to programatically retrieve the date created and last modified on an external file.
With VBA on a Windows system I can write code like:
Sub GetDateCreated() Dim oFS As Object Dim strFilename As String 'Put your filename here strFilename = "c:\excel stuff\commandbar info.xls" 'This creates an instance of the MS Scripting Runtime FileSystemObject class Set oFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") MsgBox strFilename & " was created on " & oFS.GetFile(strFilename).DateCreated Set oFS = Nothing
But of course on a Apple or Linux system the create object statement will will not work.
Can anyone tell me what I need to do in order to make this work with LO?
