Have you heard about the DenodoConnect FileSystem Custom Wrapper? This wrapper enables VDP to retrieve information from the filesystem of the VDP Server host. You can get information from the metadata of the files like its name, size, last modification date...
If you have a non express license you can find it in the Support Site.
I think you could use it for getting the creation date of the file and later, create a join with the excel base view to have all the required data in the same view.
Hope this helps!
