Hello All,

    I have a list of text files in a folder which becomes available
daily. I would like to access these daily files by date in my program.
Is it possible in stata to identify the datasets created by date? My
dataset are named like the following:

Name				Date Modified
PARCEL.G1911V00		03/29/05
PARCEL.G1921V00		03/29/05
PARCEL.G1914V00		03/30/05
and so on.

In my program, I would only like to capture PARCEL.G1911V00 and
PARCEL.G1921V00 since they are created on the same date (03/29/05) and
ignore PARCEL.G1914V00 which I would like to capture on 03/30/05's run.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Pinaki Mitra
