Hi there and welcome
If you do this now on a new document, does it mislable the dates still?
ok, they have enxountered a computer then with the incorrect date and time
How many computers has it been exposed to?
ok, the document was used on a computer with the incorrect date and time, this is the most common cause for the issue.
How many different computers have worked on this file?
ok, but the only way this can occur is at the time when the date and time was set, the computer had it incorrectly. It gets this from the computer, as the computer is geting it from the internet but stores it locally, it is possible an intermediete issue occurred with the clock on the computer before it updated online (it does this every 30 seconds)
But the cause for this is that at the time it applied the date and time, it was incorrect on the computer.
Do you know which computer gave the incorrect date and time?
Ok, but it will take the time from the computer, unless the person who was editing the file manually modified it themselves, if you know how to this can be done with the right program.
Do you feel they may have purposly done this?
Only two ways
1) The date and time at the time was incorrect on the computer at the time the documents updated the date and time as they only get this from the computer. Either the clock malfunctioned and it was incorrect for 30 seconds until it updated the date and time which computers do from an online source. Or someone changed the date and time on the computer then modified the document so it would have the different date and time.
2) A program was used to modify the date and time. There are a range of free programs available, this is one such program http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/bulk_file_changer.html and most a free and easy to use. These can change the date and time.
There are the only two ways this can occur.
