Accessing SharePoint information regarding specific documents using C#

Posted on 2012-09-17
Last Modified: 2012-09-18
I have a routine that is currently gathering SharePoint files using their UNC locations as specified in a SQL Server database table.  However, along with this I need to also gather details regarding each file (document) as displayed in SharePoint.  I am specifically interested in Name, Modified, and Modified By details of each file.  Since these are Microsoft Project files, not part of the Office suite of applications, some of the details (i.e., Modified By), are not available through Windows Explorer.

Does anybody know of a method or can provide an example where document information from SharePoint can be captured using C# or even VB.NET?
