"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Don't quite know what you want to do about it, but this shows how to use VBA to check the file date:

Dim strMyFile As String
strMyFile = "C:\MyFolder\MyFile.txt"
If DateDiff("d", Now, FileDateTime(strMyFile)) <> 0 Then
    MsgBox "This is not today's file"
End If
