This query will give you what you want:

SELECT MSysObjects.DateUpdate, MSysObjects.DateCreate, MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects;


MSysObjects is a system table which can be viewed by pressing Tools/Options then tick System Objects on the view tab

SELECT MSysObjects.DateUpdate, MSysObjects.DateCreate, MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE MSysObjects.Type=1;

will list only tables (including system tables)

There's a couple of ways to accomplish this.  The easiest is with the following sql statement:

"SELECT DateUpdated, DateCreated FROM MSysObjects WHERE Name='<table name>';"  

To view this table goto:  Tools->Options and check System Objects

or if you just want to quickly view the date you can change the your view in the database window to Details (View->Details)

In VBA there is also a .DateCreated & .LastUpated property for the tableDef object.  There's an example of how to use this property in MS-Access Help.  Hope this helps you.

SELECT MSysObjects.DateUpdate, MSysObjects.DateCreate, MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE MSysObjects.Type=1 or MsysObjects.Type = 6;

to include linked tables as well as local table.
