Subject:Most recent file modified in a folder, in a table From:Dan Goldstein <DGoldstein -at- nuot -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L (techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com)" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Tue, 2 Feb 2016 22:19:01 +0000
I'd like to use either an Excel spreadsheet or a Word table to do the following:
* I create a column that lists certain folder paths:
* C:\Users\dgoldstein\Documents\ChocolateMilkshakes, etc.
* Excel or Word populates the column next to it with the most recent date that any file in that folder was modified.
* If the macro/field code requires that the folder path not have spaces, etc., I can adjust for that.
