'Change the line with "CHANGE HERE IF YOU WANT" according to what you want (from the above possibilities)

            pd = String(totalDigits-len(n),"0") & n 
        else 
            pd = n 
        end if 
End Function 

Sub SelectedFilesStoreDate

  Dim mySongList
      Set mySongList = SDB.SelectedSongList

  If mySongList.Count = 0 Then
    Set mySongList = SDB.AllVisibleSongList
    If mySongList.Count = 0 Then
      SDB.MessageBox "Nothing selected!", mtError, Array(mbOK)
      Exit Sub
    End If
  End If

  Dim i, mySong, fd, fdt,fdtyyyymmd
  For i = 0 To mySongList.Count - 1
    Set mySong = mySongList.Item(i)
    fdt = GetFileDatecreated(mysong.path)   'CHANGE HERE IF YOU WANT
    if isdate(fdt) then
      fd = cDate(fdt)
      fdtyyyymmdd=Year(fd)&pd(month(fd),2)&pd(day(fd),2)&" "&formatdatetime(fd,vbShortTime)
    '  msgbox(fdtyyyymmdd)
      mySong.Custom3 = fdtyyyymmdd
      mySong.UpdateDB
    end if
  Next

End Sub



Function GetFileDateCreated(FilePath)

  Dim FSO
      Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

  Dim File
      Set File = FSO.GetFile(FilePath)

  GetFileDateCreated = File.DateCreated

End Function



Function GetFileDateLastModified(FilePath)

  Dim FSO
      Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

  Dim File
      Set File = FSO.GetFile(FilePath)

  GetFileDateLastModified = File.DateLastModified

End Function
EDIT Peke: Just made it look better.
I know it's a long time since this was posted, but i was wondering. Is it possible to make it look like YYYY.MM.DD instead of YYYYMMDD ?
Also is it possible to make Mediamonkey run this script on all new songs added?

Not sure about your first question, but see this post for your second one: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 85#p407310

Man I really need this field for my spotify to mediamonkey workflow. Other than this one important issue Mediamonkey is 100x better than Itunes

i'm getting some vb errors. the funny version is that the old version of that script loads, but doesn't work correctly (ie doens't get the same date created dates as I would have off the files in Windows File explorer)
