Hello,

the document properties in the attached screenshot show the last modified date. That's the only one you can access. Word does not keep a history of earlier dates. So if that's what the document shows, unfortunately that's the only date you can see.

Sorry.

cheers, teylyn
The information has not been deleted.  The last-modified date is kept in the filing system, and is not passed with file transfers. It is not maintained in the file itself.

Is Todar's solution the only one way?
I can see a date. Is this the last saved date?
