Running Windows 7, I encountered an unexpected issue after converting thousands of .wps files to .docx format -- the modified date for all those .docx files became the date when they were converted from .wps format.  Thanks to experts who participated in previous questions, I've been able to restore accurate modified dates to the time stamps of most of those files.  This question pertains to the "date created" attributes for those files, which are now later than the modified dates.   I would like to set the "created" date equal to the "modified" date for .docx files -- only if the "created" date is later.  The .docx files are distributed among hundreds of subfolders within a single drive.
