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.

As far as I know, there is no way to get this information.
Even though Access stores it internally, it is not exposed anywhere that is accessible programmatically.

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
