Information in Details tab of Properties dialogue of Word files

Post by jmt356 »

The information in the Details tab of the Properties dialogue of my Word files is illogical. Once entry states that a file was creates in 2020, but last printed in 2004. How is that possible?

I often get properties that show a file's Creation date as having been after the Date last saved.

Are these dates totally arbitrary?

This can happen when the file has been copied to another location - this may reset the Created date.
