Hi experts

I'm using the VBA code below to insert a picture into Word. I'm wondering if there is a way to pick up the date the picture was created as if it is before a certain date I need to handle it differently.
Dim oDialog As Word.Dialog, lngPictureSize As Double
 Set oDialog = Dialogs(wdDialogInsertPicture)
 Dim pic As InlineShape
 
  With oDialog
    .Display
    
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    If .Name <> "" Then
             Set pic = ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.AddPicture(FileName:=.Name, _
            LinkToFile:=False, _
            SaveWithDocument:=True, _
            Range:=Selection.Range)

This line:

            LinkToFile:=False, _

means that you can't do it later.


But you can do this to decide whether the picture is new enough to add to the document.
Dim oDialog As Word.Dialog, lngPictureSize As Double
    Dim pic As InlineShape
    Dim myDate As Date
    
    myDate = DateSerial(2009, 11, 23)
    
    Set oDialog = Dialogs(wdDialogInsertPicture)
    With oDialog
        .Display
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        If .Name <> "" Then
            If FileDateTime(.Name) > myDate Then
            
            Set pic = ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.AddPicture(FileName:=.Name, _
                      LinkToFile:=False, _
                      SaveWithDocument:=True, _
                      Range:=Selection.Range)
