How do I programatically get file meta data including owner, last file access, size etc.
Posted on 2009-05-01
I am trying to import file Meta data into an application, which is at this stage being designed in AccessVBA. The spec of the data I require for the files it finds in a search include name, size, owner, last access.
I can easily search for files using VBA, that is not a problem, but I cannot get back the granularity of information about the files that I need. Using VBA to search large drives, folders and sub folders is also quite slow.
Is there a way of calling a windows procedure that will run return the data to the calling proc.
I would be grateful if anyone can pointg me in the right direction as I cannot find a way of getting the file data I need.
I am working with file data on a Windows Servcer 2003 standard server and Access 2003 VBA.
