Modified (initially): When the document initially Saved/Modified

Modified ( in this file): The document Last modified date

does this mean that Modified (initially) does not change but the Modified ( in this file) is dynamic as the document is edited?

When you physically Save the document, both are updated.

You can see a change in time/date between 2 replica copies. Try to save a document in one replica and replicate, you can check the difference.

Modified initially: when modifications were on a document itself
Modified in this file: when the modification was replicated to this database from the database the modification happened in.

My two cents...

This is the explanation qwaletee gave me in a similar question last year:

As to the dfiiferences in times... understand the Notes replication.  I can create a doc on a local replica at 9:00, replicate it up at 10:00, modify it on the local at 11:00, and replicate it again at 12:00.

So created is 9:00, whether I am looking at the server or the local.  But on the server I also see Added at 10:00, while locally, Added is the same as Created.

Similar for modified/modified in this file.  local that's 11:00 for both.  On the server, Modified is 11:00, modified in this file is 12:00.

This is essentially what madheeswar and sjef said, but with an example to clarify. (Points to them or to qwaletee if you can find him.)

Yeah, Qwaletee seems to have disapeared.

Sjef has it right, Madheeswar got it mixed up a but.  He's refering to created versus modified, not modified at point-of-save versus modified local.

Take this example...can  you guys help me determine what caused the replication save conflict of the two documents below by using the dates in the document properties?

Any idea or intelligient guess will be appreciated!

Now, why would I continue to comment on a thread abandoned for over a month, until the asker happened to need more help?
