This partial code retrieves file names. I need help with the following remaining:

1. Date file created
2. Date file last modified
3. Number of rows in Sheet1

I appreciate the help.

        ExcelFiles xlFile = new ExcelFiles();

        // Put file names in the directory into array.
        string dirPath ="C:\\Users\\Mike\\Data\\"; 
        var files = Directory
                        .EnumerateFiles(dirPath, "*", SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly)
                        .Select(Path.GetFileName);

        // store file names in xlFile object
        foreach (string name in files)
        {
            string file =name;
            string fileExtention = name.Substring(name.Length - 5);
            if (fileExtention == ".xlsx")
            {
                xlFile.filename = file;

                // add the following file attribute to xlFile object 
                //xlFile.recourdCount =  // number of rows in Sheet1
                //xlFile.createdOn =  // date file created
                //xlFile.lastModified =// date file last modified
            }
        }
