Hi everybody,

there is a way to read the Excel File properties such as "Creation Date" or "Author" or other properties?

Hi Marco,

you have to use OPCPackage class if your Excel File has Office Open XML format (.xlsx). Here's some code and I've attached script you can download and use.

var file = Dialogs.getFilePath("","xlsx",null,"Select file",0)[0]
var baData = file.getData()
var fis = new
var xlsxFile =
var author = xlsxFile.getPackageProperties().getCreatorProperty().getValue()
var creationDate = xlsxFile.getPackageProperties().getCreatedProperty().getValue()


If you need more file properties you can find them in OPCPackage specifications.
