Mornin' All,

I have an Edit Field in the bottom margin of my Graphics Catalog that I 
"Post" its date of Origin .. 

At present .. It reads a Date that I have to manually enter in the STR# 
Resource

I would LIKE to have it enter that Date automatically .. I see 2 ways to 
do this

1. Each time it is opened  .. Make it "Read" the Date Of its Last 
Modification and insert that date into my Edit Field

This seems to be a "Bummer" because it would be Date & Time which is more 
than what I want

UNLESS .. It could be made to read it as the ShortDate only

2. Have my FN that Imports a PICT not only install the PICT .. Have it 
also automatically 

>  CALL IUDATESTRING ([_Time], _ShortDate, ShortDate$)

and change STR# (500,1) to the ShortDate

Being "Like A Blind Dog In A Meat House" .. 

I think the 2nd way would be the best .. BUT .. I nave no Idea how to do 
it ..

In Fact .. I don't know If either is even possible .. I may be just 
"Whistling Dixie"

Any advice would be truly appreciated
