VBscript Help

I have a script that is searching for extentions on a drive.  If that extention is found it writes the information to a file.  It works great except when I try to add the obj.datelastmodified to the output file.  when I add that object the file returns empty.  If I take that out then I get the results.


How can I get my output to show the last modified date?

'  SCAN FOR FILES WITH EXTENSION
strInput = "mdb"
strInput1 = "wp"
strInput2 = "wp4"
strInput3 = "wp5"
strInput4 = "wp6"
strInput5 = "wp7"
strInput6 = "wb2"
strInput7 = "wpd"

Set colComputers = GetObject("LDAP://ou=SCAN,ou=Servers,DC=domain,DC=local")
For Each objComputer In colComputers
strComputer = objComputer.CN
on error Resume next
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from CIM_DataFile Where (Extension = '" & strInput &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput1 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput2 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput3 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput4 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput5 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput6 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput7 &"') AND (Drive = 'F:') ")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set wfile = fso.opentextfile("c:\SCANS\New.csv",2,true)
For Each objFile in colFiles 
Wfile.writeline(strComputer & "," & objFile.Drive & "\" & objFile.Path & "\" & objFile.FileName & "." & objFile.Extension & "," & objFile.FileSize & "," & objFile.DateLastModified)
next

Just out of curiosity...try setting a variable for your output...

myString = strComputer & "," & objFile.Drive & "\" & objFile.Path & "\" & objFile.FileName & "." & objFile.Extension & "," & objFile.FileSize & "," & objFile.DateLastModified

then write it out...

Wfile.writeline(myString)

Is it a typo, or did you really use
  obj.datelastmodified
instead of
  objFile.datelastmodified
?

Try writing the DateLastModified value to a variable and examining it in a MsgBox.  You might need to check it for validity before writing it to a text file.

Remove the following line, and run again, seeing if you get any errors.
on error Resume next

You need to change

objFile.DateLastModified

to

objFile.LastModified

The WMI execution isn't returning a FileSystem file object, but rather a CIM_Datafile class member.

That being said, what you will see in the CSV file will likely be in a format like this for the date:

20120120112210.687139-300

Which may or not be what you want.

As Bill said, you need to use objFile.LastModified and pipe the result through a function that converts the date to a readable format
The below script should do all of that for you
' SCAN FOR FILES WITH EXTENSION
strInput = "mdb"
strInput1 = "wp"
strInput2 = "wp4"
strInput3 = "wp5"
strInput4 = "wp6"
strInput5 = "wp7"
strInput6 = "wb2"
strInput7 = "wpd"

Set colComputers = GetObject("LDAP://ou=SCAN,ou=Servers,DC=domain,DC=local")
For Each objComputer In colComputers
	strComputer = objComputer.CN
	on error Resume next
	Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
	Set colFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
	("Select * from CIM_DataFile Where (Extension = '" & strInput &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput1 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput2 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput3 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput4 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput5 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput6 &"' OR Extension = '" & strInput7 &"') AND (Drive = 'F:') ")
	Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	set wfile = fso.opentextfile("c:\SCANS\New.csv",2,true)

	For Each objFile in colFiles
		strLastMod = DatetimeToDate(objFile.LastModified)
		Wfile.writeline(strComputer & "," & objFile.Drive & "\" & objFile.Path & "\" & objFile.FileName & "." & objFile.Extension & "," & objFile.FileSize & "," & strLastMod)
	next
next

Function DatetimeToDate(strDate)
   DatetimeToDate = CDate(Mid(strDate, 5, 2) & "/" & Mid(strDate, 7, 2) & "/" & Left(strDate, 4) & " " & Mid (strDate, 9, 2) & ":" & Mid(strDate, 11, 2) & ":" & Mid(strDate, 13, 2))
End Function
