Hi All,

Can you please check the below and if you have any idea to solve, please reply.

My files are named as follows:

2013.03.04 video1.avi
2014.11.03 video2.avi

I would like to change the created/modified date of the files by the scripting feature based on the date specified in the file name.

I can set a new date in 'item.newModifiedDate' but how can I apply the new date to the file?
What do I have to return at the end in the 'return' command?

Instead of the script method have you tried to use the Timestamp method and configure it to use "Filename pattern"? That feature is made for this purpose. d_timestamp
