How can i know FOR SURE when a document was created.  I know that if you look at the FILE- PROPERTIES it will tell you when it was created, modified etc, but this feeds from the computer date.  Any way of telling for sure when it was created.

You can't do it because every time/date will be taken from the computer date, which is the only source of the date in the PC.

If this is really important to you when you are creating documents, you can store the date in a custom document property or a document variable. This requires some macro coding however.
