    Hi, welcome...
    I'm not entirely sure what you want to do... you want to change the file create date... to what?
    Also, it would be helpful to know what version and SR number of Word you're working with. Please elaborate. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
    have fun

    Hi,thanks,

    I want to find out if it is possible to change this date. It's a long story...but I was asked to find out if a student submitting a paper (with a due date) on disk could change the creation date to reflect an earlier date. The version would probably be 97 SR2. Thanks for your help.

    Well, if one was desperate enough, they could change the system date on their PC, create the document, save it, exit Word, and then change the system date back. So sure, it can be done.

    Yes, it is possible to do this. WOPR includes a utility that will do it, I think.

    Yes, with "Properties Plus" you can do all kind of things like this <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>
    If you want a copy of it most of the different download centers can link you to it.
