I want an UDF that gives me the date of file's last update.
I tried use it:

Code:
Public Function LastUpdate() As Date
Application.Volatile
    strPath = Application.ThisWorkbook.FullName
    LastUpdate = Format(FileDateTime(strPath), "dd/mm/yyyy h:mm:ss")
End Function

But, everytime the Excel is opened, the date that is set is the current date, even the file has not been saved.

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Hi

You can use:

Code:
Public Function LastUpdate() As Double
    LastUpdate = ThisWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties(12)
End Function

and format the cell with that formula the way you want.
