Hi,
 
     I can't seem to find a simple way to extract the date from TSearchrec.date. In other words, the date is returned as a large number, and the normal date conversion functions don't seem to work with this. There must be a simple solution to this that I am overlooking?  I simply want to be able to put it in a caption in a date format (10/26/97 for example).
          Thanks a bunch.

You may try this. You have a FileName and use this construction, where Result is type System.TDateTime. See Borland Example FilManex in demos
 Result := FileDateToDateTime(FileAge(FileName));

Waldek,

   This got me in pointed in the right direction.  I ended up doing exactly as specified, and then put that in a datetostr function so I could place it in a caption.  It seems like their must be a better solution than using 3 functions to accomplish this, but the important thing is that it works. :)
