  • Time Stamp Issues

    Two questions about time stamp: 1. Is there a way to copy members/files etc so that the new member/file will still have the original time stamp (change date etc.) 2. Is there a way to update the member/file change date/time to a specific date/time (without actually saving it) ? thanks !!

    Can someone tell me how to send an attachment with a .csv or .xls? When I try, it sends it as .txt and when you open it up, it's all garbage! Also, how can I add headings to an .xls or .csv when using cpytoimpf. All I'm getting now is just data. Thanks!
