Reply with quote

Hi,
I need to check the creation date of a PS file on a daily basis for production support monitoring. Currently we are automating this along with some other validations. How do i get the creation date of a PS file through a job apart from getting julian date by using LISTCAT and then converting it.

Hello,

Why convert the date?

Can you not simply compare the create data against today's date (both Julian)?

Its for production support to ensure that the file is created within a particular time limit

Unfortunately this to me sounds like another cobbled together hardly tested or thought out application.

But without understanding the application there is nothing that I or anyone else can suggest to make this task any easier.
