Difference between content and file creation dates RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Word 2010 file that has a different date for Content Created than Date Created.  Can anyone explain the difference is between these two? 

    Thank you.

  • Here is what I found:

    Date Created is the time when the document is created.

    Content Created has two status:

    i. When the document is created and we don't add any content (Text, Table, Chart, etc) to the document, it will be set the same value as "Date Created".

    ii. Once we add any content to the document, and have it saved, it will obtain a new time value - the time we save the document with new added conten. (After that, this value won't change any more, just like "Date Created".)
