    Last Accessed is when the file was last opened. Last Modified is when it's content was last changed. And Created is when it was first created or when it was placed on the storage medium it is on currently. Thus it is possible for the Created date to be newer than the Last Accessed and the Last Modified dates. Make sense ?? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Take an Excel workbook, for example.

    - You create it on March 1.
    - On March 3, you open it and edit some cells, then save it.
    - On March 7, you open it, then close it without having changed anything.

    The create date of the .xls file would be March 1, the last modified date March 3 and the last accessed date March 7.

    Always worth a read, to depress you, is Windows File Date and Time.
