I took a QB45 application and produced a QB64 application from it over 100,000 lines of code. All the pricing was hard coded in the program so I started reading from CSV files but now I need the date from the CSV file without putting a directory to a text file and reading for the date. I found this code:

'===========================================================================

' Subject: GET/SET FILE DATE/TIME Date: Unknown Date (00:00)
' Author: Matt Hart Code: QB, PDS
' Keys: GET,SET,FILE,DATE,TIME Packet: DOS.ABC
'===========================================================================
' FILEDATE.BAS by Matt Hart
'
' Gets or sets a file date/time
'
' GetFileDateTime returns the Date in MM-DD-YYYY format
' and the Time in HH:MM:SS
' SetFileDateTime expects the Date and Time in the same formats

'$INCLUDE: 'QB.BI' ' Use your path to QB or QBX.BI
DEFINT A-Z
DECLARE SUB GetFileDateTime (F$, Dat$, Tim$, Ecode%)
DECLARE SUB SetFileDateTime (F$, Dat$, Tim$, Ecode%)

' ------------------------- Sample code
F$ = LTRIM$(RTRIM$(COMMAND$))
CALL GetFileDateTime(F$, Dat$, Tim$, Ecode)
IF NOT Ecode THEN
PRINT F$; " date is "; Dat$
PRINT F$; " time is "; Tim$
ELSE
PRINT "1 Error = "; Ecode
END
END IF
NewTim$ = "01:01:02"
NewDat$ = "02-02-1980"
CALL SetFileDateTime(F$, NewDat$, NewTim$, Ecode)
IF Ecode THEN
PRINT "2 Error = "; Ecode
END
END IF
CALL GetFileDateTime(F$, Dat$, Tim$, Ecode)
IF Ecode THEN
PRINT "3 Error = "; Ecode
END
END IF
PRINT F$; " new date is "; Dat$
PRINT F$; " new time is "; Tim$
CALL SetFileDateTime(F$, Dat$, Tim$, Ecode)
IF Ecode THEN
PRINT "4 Error = "; Ecode
END
END IF
END

The problem when I run it is that the assembler is for 16 bit registers and I am using 32 or 64 with windows 7 and i5 core. Can anyone help me to figure out how the date will be returned in a longer int value from the register?
