Looking to get the Microsoft Access 2010 table created date/time to show up on a form in a textbox or label (don't which is best).

Objective
Display the Created Date for a table, "tmp_New_Items", on a form, "frm_New_Items", in a Textbox or Label.  

Steps Taken:

1.      Wrote the following function that works, now I need to get the results pushed to my form.

Public Function GetTableCreateDate(CreatedDate)

    CreateDate = CurrentDb.TableDefs("tmp_New_ITEMS").Properties("DateCreated")
    MsgBox CreateDate
     
End Function
2.      Added Text Box to form and updated the Control Source to “GetTableCreateDate(CreatedDate)”
3.      The Msgbox works… heee (We will remark that once working)
4.      Do I need to setup and run a Macro? (I’m not familiar with how)

Background:
When New Products are Ready to be imported we conduct a Make Table Query that creates the tmp_New_Items table with no problems.

Look at sample. Your function should be liitle bit different:
Public Function GetTableCreateDate() As Date

    GetTableCreateDate = CurrentDb.TableDefs("tmp_New_ITEMS").Properties("DateCreated")
     
End Function

Open in new window

DBtblDate.accdb

You can  update your function to return the date  like this:
Public Function GetTableCreateDate(pTableName as String) as Date

    GetTableCreateDate= CurrentDb.TableDefs(pTableName).Properties("DateCreated")
        
End Function

Open in new window

Example usage in immediate window:
 ? GetTableCreateDate("tmp_New_ITEMS")

Open in new window


Set the control soucre to: =GetTableCreateDate("tmp_New_ITEMS")

Now the function can be used with any table by passing the table name to the function and it will return the Date Created.
