Unable to insert Date Created attribute

There is some problem that prevents me from being able to insert the Date Created attribute on an item.

I right-click in the empty white space of the Item Attributes pane, and click Insert, then I type in "Date Created" for the attribute name ("Date Created" is not available in the drop-down list, why not?)

Then I give it a Category of System and a Type of Date+Time, when I click insert an error MessageBox appears: "Error inserting attribute: Attribute names must be unique (case-insensative comparison)"

I can, however, create a new attribute with the name "Date Created" (NOTE the two spaces between "Date" and "Created"... this works because it doesn't conflict with the name "Date Created" which is a built-in System attribute, but why doesn't it show up in my list of attributes?

Also, when I use the Advanced Search interface it doesn't show up in that list of attributes either.

You need to take a look at Tools | Attributes - Category = System, you'll find Date Created already exists.

You might also look at Tools | Options | Attributes - to display, this controls which System Attributes will display in the IA Pane (Ctrl-3).

Question Find and Seach on Date Created? Date Last Edited?

For some reason the "Date Created" is NOT showing in my "Item Attributes" pane even though it is checked under: Tools | Options | Attributes

Is there a way to restore this display?

Also, is there any way to search for "Date Created"? I'd like to check for any new items added in a conflicted (Dropbox) copy of my database.

Finally, is there some type of system attribute associated with the last date/time edited? If so:
-- what is this attribute called?
-- can a search be done on the dates associated with this attribute?

Does repairing the database help? If not, please send the info at

Normally, you can do an advanced search on Date Create or Date Modified to search on the create date and modified date of an item.
