field modified date

Question: field modified date

Is it possible with Access 2010 to have a date field that would change to current date whenever another particular field is modified. For example, we have comment field and we would like to have another date field that would change to the current date when the comment field has a change.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: field modified date

Yes you can do it with simple VBA code, you could also add it to the comment itself, so it appears at the beginning of the comment.

Hi guys,

Something weird is happening. Some of my movie files (file type doesn't matter) became corrupted; when I play them in VLC they cause errors, they were just fine before and nothing has changed. I noticed in Explorer that these files have no Date Modified field, it's simply blank; I've never seen anything like that.

I did a chkdsk on the drive and see no errors. What could it be ?

Thanks.

Answer:Blank Date Modified Field ?

VLC should rebuild the Index, but that is a temporary fix. Depending on what format they are, there is "DIVFIX" and "Meteor MKV repair" you can try to run the faulty content through which of those is appropriate, you'll have to google it, cant remember the links.

While searching for some information in some old files, I noticed that every time I open a Word document, using Word 2007, the "date modified" shown in Windows Explorer automatically updates and changes the file properties to reflect the current date and time. I make no changes to the file and at no time am I asked to “Save” the document, which would justify the update of the “Date Modified” field.

This happens in both Vista and XP.

Is there any way I can change this setting? I only want the date modified to change when I actually make a modification to the document.

I would like for my Access 2007 database to automatically record the date/time when the data in a SPECIFIC field is modified (not when any data in the record changes).

Here is a simplified explanation of my scenario. This database keeps track of cases in my office. A data entry form named "Cases" feeds a table named "Cases." The form includes text boxes that correspond to the fields in the table. Three of these are: "Case_Notes," "Case_Status," and "Date_Status_Change."

I would like for the "Date_Status_Change" field to automatically reflect the current date/time whenever the data in the "Case_Status" field changes. I do not want the date/time to change when information in the "Case_Notes" field is modified.

What code would accomplish this?

The following code will enter the date/time for a change anywhere in the record:

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Me![Date_Status_Change].Value = Now()
End Sub

But I want to limit it so that it dates changes ONLY in the ?Case_Status? field.

I have a folder, that within that folder, items are listed by date modified. Great, that's exactly what I want. But, I have one folder within that folder that I'd like to always be at the TOP of the view. The folders go back to 2013. Is there a way to manually change that one specific folder's modify date to xx-xx-2012 so it will always remain at the top?

I've already run the reg fix to turn off auto-arrange, so, I can manually drag it to the top of the folder, but, randomly every once in a while, it returns to it's "proper" place by date.

I use due dates on my Outlook tasks. When I customize my Tasks list (in the Calendar view) to group by due date, I just get too many groupings (one for each due date!). I would like to know if I can create a custom field called 'Due Month' and/or 'Due Week', extracted from the 'Due Date', so I can view my tasks by what is due during a given week or month. If the answer is yes, any suggestions on the technique I would use would be greatly appreciated.

Help! I am using a Seagate Central 4TB NAS drive attached to my router via Ethernet. It has been working fine so far for all kinds of file activities. But whenever I modify a file in one of its folders, the creation date for the file also updates and is
changed to the same time as the new modified date.
Maybe relevant details:
I can move/copy folders to the drive and they maintain their created dates.
It happens for both a private user share on the NAS and for the Public share on it.
It happens for at least image files and text files.
I am able to edit files across two computers on the network just fine, the create date stays the same.
This happens from a new Windows 10 machine and Vista machine both.
I notice sometimes the date created seems to stay same until I access the file the next time.
I can't update the NAS firmware because of error.

If it could be a permissions problem, I have been unable to change it from:
Everyone: Special Permissions only
nobody (Unix Group\nobody): Special Permissions only

Please help with this question about file date-created VS date-modified in Windows 7.

Suppose a file is created at time1.

How come Windows7 reports "date created" as "time1" and "date modified" as "time2" where "time2" is a time earlier than time1?

See the attached file, "WindowsDateIssue201203061503.png", for an example.

Thanks.

Answer:file date-created VS date-modified where modified < created

If you (/your computer) have not played with system time:

That means that file is a copy of a file created earlier.

To confirm, find an old file and copy it to another folder/disc.
Check the dates.

This situation can also occur with some archives (depending on your settings).

First the background: We are gradually deploying Office 2007, but not everyone in the agency has it. I have both 2003 and 2007 installed on my system, but I do my work in 2003, and none of our databases have actually been converted to 2007 format (at least, none that I work with).

Hello,

1. Although the cell formatting is dd/mm/yyyy the data is being shown in mm/dd/yyyy which means the dates are incorrect (e.g. 2nd January would read as 1st February.)
2. As a result of this dates which are passed the 12th of a month are not accepted as dates (it reads the day figure as months and there is no 13th month etc)

They would be the same, for example. You draw a picture in paint, save it and dont edit it again. When you save it you create the file, and seeing you dont edit it the modfication date and the creation date will be the same.

Help! This should be easy but I can't get it to work.

I have a report that must group by Trip# and sort by ascending activity date all of the various activities that took place on multiple days of the trip.
Further, the trip with the earliest date must come first regardless of the Trip#.
I've accomplished getting the earliest starting date trip first and grouping its detail with a unique string made up of the earliest date of each trip formatted to YYYYMMDD+Trip#. This prints a trip total and works fine.

But the daily activity for the trip is out of date sequence.
Adding a Date field to the 'Sorting and Grouping' insists on breaking on and printing a sub-total for each of the trips activity dates.
Without the sorting & grouping by date the trip records are out of sequence even though the data source query is sorted ascending by activity date.

(see attachments that show the above)

The only solution I can think of is to create a sub-report sorted by activity date.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

Hi,

Ok, I tried IE7 for the first time recently and found a horrible bug that I can't find a reasonable solution to.

It has something to with IE7 (and IE8) updating the URLs "date modified" time stamp if the URL has a favicon.

Example :

goto this URL :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft

Drag the URL to your desktop or any folder. Note the date modified time stamp. A minute later, double click on the URL and let it open. Now look at the time stamp again. It will be automatically updated because this website has a favicon. IE7 will automatically update the date modified time stamp whether you want it to or not.

THIS IS A PAIN IN THE BEHIND if you have lots of URLs sorted by date modified.

The ONLY solution I have found is to change the properties of EVERY URL to "read only". This will prevent the time stamp from being overridden.

There has to be a better way than having to resort to this for every bookmark or URL.

This "feature" of IE7/IE8 really sucks and there should be an option to disable it.

Does anyone have any ideas?
 

Answer:IE7 / IE8 bookmark date modified bug - ANY IDEAS?

I'm using IE7 and it's not doing what you're saying. The date modified/created/accessed date stays the same every time I reopen it after dragging the link you posted above to the desktop. Are you sure it's not being updated by your anti-virus software?

If you have IE8 set to delete your history/flush the cache every time you exit, that might also be a problem if it has to retrieve the icon every time. Sounds like a KAC problem.

Hi Friends,

I am having a list of folders, say 50. Each folders contains thousands of files of different types (say .dat, .xls. .doc). I want to classify these files year wise and keep each in a folder having the particular year as name.This should be done for all these 50 parent folders. Then each folders and sub folders should be compressed.

Please help me,,, preferably not batch commands
 

Answer:Compress files modified before a particular date

How would you like this task solved if you don't want it done with a batch file?

Hi! First off, I kinda suck with computers, so I'm sorry if I make this more difficult than it should be. Also, this is kind of a silly question.
When I used to download images, my computer would automatically add a 'date modified' thingy to it, so that I could sort through them easily by setting the folder to be arranged by the date I saved it. But it suddenly stopped adding the date modified- or any other properties- to anything I right-click-save, so that I have to search through my (admittedly large) folder and manually add the date. Is there any way I could set it back to automatically doing this? Thanks!

Answer:Won't automatically add 'Date modified' to downloads

Welcome to Seven Forums narwhalsmash. Try this.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Open a folder with the images> Right click a blank area and chose Sort by> Scroll down to More at the bottom> Scroll down to Date modified and put a check mark next to it> Now click on the Date modified text itself and on the right side, Move up should now be clickable> Click on Move up



This will move Date modified to the top of the list. See if your old behavior is now back.

"date modified" field does not update when files are replaced in a zip folder while running Windows 7 64-bit.

Data files are stored in zip files and utilized daily. At the days end the files are replaced with the most current revision. The updated file displays the correct "date modified", however when the filed is transfered into the zip file, the "date modified" displayed within the zip file does not update.

I don't have this problem with Windows XP or 2000. Is there some hidden setting that is needed for Windows 7 to recognize file modification dates just as every version prior?

It becomes frustrating that Microsoft continues to add nice new fancy operating features, but yet continuously fails to ensure the basic functions are maintained.

Answer:Windows 7 zip file date modified

You must be seeing things because it updates the modified time just fine.

This question pertains specifically to a video that is being downloaded.

What is being done to the video in order for the file modified date to change?

From other forums ive gathered that it might be Windows Media player modifying some meta data automatically.  

Does this modification happen to files that have previously been played in Windows Media Player?

Or can you have video files anywhere on your computer and WMP will modify the video file at least once after the original download occured(Even if you haven't
viewed this video yet)?

I am trying to see if this information can tell me if someone has viewed the videos that have been downloaded or not. 

I have 4 videos downloaded from within 15 minutes of each other. Each of the 4 videos have the modification time the same or 1 second difference.  So
it does seem to be something WMP is automatically modifying something.  So if anyone could shed some light onto the process that would be great.

The format for all the videos that have a modified date after a created date are, .wmv , .mpg , .mp4 , .vk.flv , .flv .

Any Information or feedback would be greatly appreciated

I am using a program that OCR's a page and then creates a folder for it inside an output folder...
Goes like this:
Input folder -> OCR program -> Output folder -> [Folder just for that document]

I keep the output folder open so that i can see the new folders being created for the OCR records, which i can then drag additional files to that records folder.
Since im dealing with thousands of folders im depending on vista to sort by date modified so that the newest one shows up on top.... But im running into a problem

I've done about 700 records now (700 folders have been created) and for some reason the date modified stopped working. Now the new folder is showing up at the end instead of the beginning. If i hit F5 to refresh the window it move to the top where it should be.... but im going through thousands of records and hitting F5 for every record consumes time and makes room for error.

Why did vista stop sorting by date modified? I didnt change anything, all of the sudden it just stopped being consistent. I can restart the computer and sometimes it will start working properly again for about 30 records, but its not guaranteee.

Please help me fix this, THANKS!

Hey, I don't really know how to describe this problem too well, but the gist of it is that on windows such as where I'm selecting a file to open, or where to save something I'm downloading, etc., XP sorts the files by their date modified, rather than by name. I don't believe I did anything to activate this, it kinda just came up out of nowhere. But it's getting really annoying. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks! :)

We're performing a directory inventory at the office that requires us to get rid of any directory that hasn't had a file modified since 1/1/08. However, the date in the 'Date Modified' column will always stay the same as the day the folder was initially created. For example, if I made a folder named "Joe's Docs" on 01/02/07 but just added a file on 7/8/10, the 'Date Modified' on "Joe's Docs" will still read 01/02/07.

Is there a program out there that will change the date modified to the most recent file in all of the subfolders? The best way I can describe it is to draw a short diagram of the theoretical directories with their dates modified below them.

I recently tried to open a document and found that it was filled with symbols looking like a 'y'. I finally determined that I had a large number of similar documents (word, excell, jpegs, publisher files) that were all unreadable.

1. They were scattered in many folders adjacent to readable files.
2. All unreadable files had the modified date of 05/01/2007 3:35 am (any file with another date was readable; any file of any type with this date was not).
3. The word documents of this type were unreadable with 'recovery' software or word's own recovery system.
4. I have had continuously running and updated virus software with daily 'clean' scans.
5. I did a Dell diagnostics on the computer and their extensive hard disk scan - no problems.
6. I do have online back up software but it, unfortunately, backed up the corrupted files since they were "modified."
7. My windows event log doesn't show anything happening at the time of this mass file modification.
8. File names are normal (for example, Letter to JP.doc). All files were created by me.

I can't find anything really similar searching the net or microsoft's knowledge bases. Does this look familiar to anyone? Any ideas to fix? (other than switching to a mac ;-) ) Thanks!

Right now I have put this code in the "View Code" option when I right click on the worksheet tab (from this forum):Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)Range("R" & Target.Row) = DateEnd SubI then close the code popup window, save the design worksheet which appears and returned to my spreadsheet, test this and it doesn't work even though the code appears when right clicking the worksheet tab and then choosing view code. What am I doing incorrectly?

Answer:Show date last modified for any cells in row

It's not clear to me what sheet tab you are clicking on but any Worksheet event code has to be placed in the sheet module for the sheet (and every sheet) where you want this to happen.Worksheet event macros are not global, they are Worksheet specific.If you want the date to appear in Sheet1 Column R, then you need to right-click the Sheet1 tab and paste code into the pane that opens.The only other reason that I can think for the code not to work for you (it works for me) is if you have some code that has turned events off.If the line:Application.EnableEvents = Falsehas been run in any macro while the current Excel session is open, then no event code will fire since the execution of that line impacts the application, i.e. Excel.Quitting Excel and restarting it or running the following line will enable events again:Application.EnableEvents = TrueNote: if you have a Macro that runs the "False" line at Excel start-up, then even quitting and restarting Excel won't help since the code will disable events as soon as Excel starts.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hi,

I would like to create some kind of batching script that replaces the date modified of many folders with their date created, any advice on what I should use to do this? I'm thinking JScript might do it, but I've not used that before, and not sure how to go about setting up to use it, or if it really is suitable.

The reason for this request, we have a media server shared on a local network, specifically an "incoming" folder that needs to be write enabled. When some users browse to folders inside incoming they create a thumbs.db file, which touches the containing folder's modified date. We could (and have) gotten those users to turn off that setting, but it only takes one person to mess it up, and has become a recurring problem over the years. Unfortunately, some other devices on the network (eg iPads) can not sort folders by date created, only date modified, so I would like to reset the folder dates automatically.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

I've hit a showstopper in Windows 7 for which I have so far been unable to find a workaround. I maintain my websites by duplicating all updated files in my local public_html directory tree to a new location, and then using FileZilla to upload only those files to the web server. This has always been simple in WinXP :
- use WinZip to archive everything in the directory tree
- open the archive, sort by date, and remove all older files
- select and extract the remaining files to the new location

Unfortunately the new version of WinZip seems to rely on the new "feature" of Windows 7 that copying a file resets its modified date, so this approach is no longer possible. I don't see any way to force it to keep the original modified date of the file in the archive. Things I've tried so far to resolve my problem are :

- RoboCopy
Does not seem to have any way to filter files to be copied by date.

- RichCopy
Looks like it should work, but the GUI selection of include/exclude filters does not work. Everything is copied, regardless of the selection, nor does that selection persist when you save the profile.

- 7-Zip
Can't find any way to hide the directories and show only the files when browsing the archive. Deleting the older files does not remove the no longer used directories. I can't see how to get the files to extract using their internal relative paths -- the dialog box mentioned in the help file does not come up on this machine.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1 on an HP desktop.  I happened to have my Documents library sorted by date modified, to keep the folder I was using at the top of the list.  Suddenly 6 random folders show up at the top of the list, all with a date and time stamp of 8/23/14 2:27pm.  I had not touched any of these folders, and I noticed this about a half hour after that timestamp.
I am concerned because one of the folders had bank statements and the other some Social Security application information. The other 4  folders were just benign like recipes.  Also, in that time while I was working, I had recently saved a file to Google drive, to make it available to me from other computers.  That file was not in any of these 6 folders.  Unfortunately, I do share my Documents library on my Homegroup (and I have since changed that...)
What could change the date modified on those folders? It seems like more than a coincidence that this happened right after I saved a file to Google drive, and that two of the folders had information that I wouldn't want to be public. 
I ran a virus scan (Windows Sec Essentials) and Malwarebytes and nothing shows up.  By the way, I have hundreds of folders in my Documents library, so just having 6 of them change is weird.

Answer:date modified on 6 folders changed suddenly

I have no direct experience with the issue but I concur with you that it's not a coincidence.
Google drive is responsible for the date changes.

It used to be, you could just sort by modified in tile view and the tiles and folders would have the time stamp on the folder/file icon.It was standard in XP but I cant find a way to bring it back in Win 7.To clarify, "sort by Tiles" then arrange by modified.I need to be able to see the date modified on the files and folders in tile view when sorted by "date modified".Any help is appreciated...Googling brought me nothing :/

Answer:Add Date Modified timestamp to files and folders like XP

You can hover the mouse pointer over the file.Or, use UltraSearch. Go into Search & make sure Include Folders is checked. List changed is where you can see the dates.http://www.softpedia.com/get/File-m...http://www.freewarefiles.com/UltraS...http://www.freewarefiles.com/screen...http://www.jam-software.com/ultrase...http://i.imgur.com/RwURD1X.gifmessage edited by Johnw

Here's my problem... I have a large collection of MP3s which I usually arrange by Date Modified. I would like to add BPM information to a selection of files but keep the existing date modified values as this is pretty much the order I got the songs.

I have found a program that analyzes the files and updates the BPM of the MP3 file but this inevitably updates the date modified valve.

Does anyone know of any way to export the date values before running the BPM process and then import the dates back in???

Or possibly another way to update the BPM values without affecting the Date Modified.

Please ask if you require any further clarification

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: Add metadata to MP3 but keep date modified unchanged

Managed to solve this one myself with a lot of searching so I shall share with anyone who's interested.

I used a program called 'AttributeMagic Pro' to first set the date created equal to the date modified, this program can perform this operation on batches of files but limited to 20 in demo mode.

I then used a program called MixMeister BPM Analyzer to calculate all the BPM, this can take a while but is still fairly fast considering...

All that remains then is to set the date modified equal to date created again using AttributeMagic Pro.
I'm yet to find a mac solution but at least i can transfer the files to my PC, run the process, then transfer them back

Hi everyone

I am new to the forum and really dying on figure this out.
I usually trying to uninstall programs by checking when they were installed in the date modified column in the uninstaller

The column does not display any data no more, and empty column

So I go to uninstaller, there is a list of programs, but nothing under the column date modified

Any suggestion is appreciated thank you thank you thank you!

Answer:Uninstaller Does Not Display Date Modified and Type

Open Control Panel > Uninstall a program (or Programs and Features)

If need be, select Detail view via the upper right corner:

Right click on one of the column heading bars and select the desired columns from the context menu.

Select More... if desired.
...or maybe I did not understand your issue.

Hey everyone,

After a recent vista os reinstall, I noticed that when I use the "date modified" sorting option files that I have recently downloaded or created refer to a much older date. I use date modified to easily tell which of my files are more recent, but after this "bug" I cannot do so anymore. However, the "date created" sorting option recognizes new files by their date, but still is not as accurate as my previous working date modified option. I would appreciate any help regarding this problem!

Thanks in advance.

Answer:[SOLVED] Date Modified Setting Error

Hi -

What "bug" are you referring to?

Since re-install, have you re-validated your Vista installation with Microsoft Genuine Advantage? Here is MS page - validation button is on left 1/2 way down.

I would like a folder and everything inside it to be sorted by Date Modified in an Ascending order. Can it be done with of without additional programs?

Answer:How do I mass sort files by Date Modified?

Hello.

This should be done by simply clicking Date Modified at the top of the folder window. For ascending order the arrow should be pointed down.

I am using Word 2007. Each time I open a .doc or .docx file, the date modified changes, as displayed in Windows Explorer. This happens when I just choose file open, and then exit, without ever doing anything with the file.

Previous versions of Word would appear to do the same thing. However, when the file was closed, the date modified in windows explorer to revert back to the previous date. Word 2007 causes the current date accessed to become the date modified.

This makes it very confusing, as it looks as though I am making changes to the file, when I am not.

Help appreciated...marty

Hi!
This has been annoying me a lot.
Let's say I have a folder with many files to which I download to.
On XP if I download a new file to it in order to find it the easiest for me is to SORT BY Date Modified and then it will show at the very last file on the list...easy enough.
In comes Vista 64 and that does not work at all...it still shows up somewhere else.
Any ideas?
Thanks

The same feature exists in Vista and Win7. Just be sure to right-click on the headers at the top of ecah olumn to pick the headings you want (be sure to add Modified Date), drag the new header(s) you added to the right position you'd like them -then click on any of them to sort by that column header.

I have upgraded to Win 10 and getting used to it little by little. There is something new which I find quite annoying. Whenever I launch an exe file, the modified date is changed to the present date/time. Is there a way to disable that like in all previous versions of Windows. I want to keep it unchanged.
Thanks.

The Modified date of files in Windows Explorer is shown as Today - Yesterday - Friday ..... and if it's older than a week as a date 13/02/2013.

Is there any way to always show the modified column as date and not day-of-week?
thank you.

I have been provided with an Excel file and I suspect that the last modified date is not genuine. It does post-date the file creation date. It would be really helpful to be able to demonstrate whether or not the date is genuine. Is that even possible?

Thanks for any help on this!

Within the last month or so, the windows which show my files and folders have stopped putting a date in the Date Modified field and in the Date Created field. This never happened until recently.

I can't figure out why this happened or how to fix it.

Any suggestions?

The thread title says it all. I want to specify specific start and stop dates as a filter, not the general "last month" or "last year" type offered.

Any help?

EDITED: Ignore this request (I don't know how to delete it.) Reason: Modifying the filename doesn't change the Date Modified field. :-(

Answer:Can I search for Date Modified between two specific dates?
