How can I find the date property of jpg files?
Posted on 2013-01-31
I'd like to write a routine in VBA for Excel that will iterate through all the jpg files in that folder and rename them to the following format: yymmdd followed by a four digit consecutive number (0001, 0002 etc) for all photos taken on the same date.
Using the GetFile method only allows me to find the Date Created or Date Modified properties, but because the files have been copied and possibly rotated (modified) these will not always give me the date I want, which is the standard Date as viewed in Windows Explorer detailed view.
How can I find this property using VBA?
