Respectively was last used to modify the file. Is this info somewhere stored in the file? Can it be easily accessed for a user? Is some vba code necessary to access it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks for the answers. Not exactly what i was looking for. Why? I can have excel 2013 and store a file as xls file. The fileformat then would show me the info that it is an xls file, but not that it was created by excle 2013.

in office, I guess it may only tell you the compatibility of the file (like word, excel, etc) but it may probably not able to tell you it was first created by a certain version of Office product.
