    File Save Date Formula

    Is there a formula that will let me include the date/time I saved or created the Excel file? I'm using Excel 2007.

    Thanks for your help.
    Thanks,

    Caroline,

    Windows already does that just look at the file in Explorer. Do you want to include it in the file name for some reason?

    If you want it in a cell:
    Code:
    Public Function LastSaveTime() As Date
       Application.Volatile
       LastSaveTime = Application.Caller.Worksheet.Parent.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time")
    End Function

    Thanks RG, yes I want that information in my spreadsheet. I actually wanted to put it in the footer but a cell at the top of the worksheet will suffice.
