Get meta data from a file

Hello qlikers 🙂 ,

is there a option to get the meta data from a file? 

For example if you right click on a file and choose properties then you get the meta data from a file.
As you can see on the screenshot

Do you have any idea, if there is a option to get the information change date  ? 

Thank you in advance! Looking forward to reading some answers! 🙂

Hi!

The provided answer is correct, look in here https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/November2019/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Scripting/FileFuncti... 

There you will find the list of available file functions, as well as filetime() which is returning timestamp of last file modification. 

Also, there you may find other file functions like attribute() for certain media file formats, qvd functions, to get whatever meta data from qvd, and some other. 

Hope all helps, 

Thanks,

BR, Eugene
