Needed: From VB, the modified date of a form.
Description of problem:  When I retrieve the object properties, the modified date is identical to the older created date.   The modified date in the forms window shows the correct date.

Hi, You should be able to ge the dates from the main database window with the code below.

currentproject.AllForms("Form_Name").DateModified 

currentproject.AllForms("Form_Name").DateCreated

Open in new window
