You can use the builtin FileDateTime function to get a directory's creation date if you add "\." to the directory name, e.g.

FileDateTime("c:\temp\.")

Hope this solves your problem, good luck!

Thanx a lot.  That's exactly what I was looking for.  I was using FileDateTime to get the date on files but couldn't get date for folders.  Again, thanx.
