Hi Alan,

Macu's response will work for the current project, but if you wanted the version number of an executable try:

Function GetVersion(PathSpec)
  Dim fso As Object
  Dim temp As String
  Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  temp = fso.GetFileVersion(PathSpec)
  If Len(temp) Then
    GetVersion = temp
  Else
    GetVersion = "No version information available."
  End If

Set fso = Nothing
End Function

Hoep this helps
