When I look at an Access Datbase file, .mdb or . aacdb, in the directory in a File Manager, the Create Date, Date Accessed, Date Modified are all the same date. All three dates equate to the last date the database was opened, regardless whether it was modified or not. If I open up an Access database created in 2013, and last modified in 2015, then, after closing the file, all three dates will be changed to today's date and will remain that way until I open it again.
However, when I open the Access file, then click "File" at the ribbon at the top, then click the link, "View and edit database properties", I get a fly out window entitled "<file name> Properties". Clicking on the tab, "Statistics", I can see
Created: <the actual date created>
Modified: <the actual date accessed> regardless if I modified it.
Accessed: <the actual date accessed>
Most other MSOffice applications, Word, Excel, won't change the Modified date, unless I change something, the save on the way out. The Create date never changes. This makes sense.
At a minimum I would like the Create Date displaying in the File Manager directory to be just that, the date the database file was created.
This has been an annoyance for as long as I've been using MSOffice Access, at least since 2000
Can this be corrected?
