Adding Date Created as Attribute

I am trying to add the date a point was created to the attribute table. I was told that this info was in the "raw data" and I should be able to do so. The only tools I've figured out how to add dates just add today's date. Am I looking for something that doesn't actually exist, or is there some tool or code that I'm missing?

I've never seen a date stored somewhere for individual features. If you're using SDE, try Editor Tracking.

I have a date created and a date modified on every street feature I manage; I use SDE with SQl server.  The create data is a manual entry, the data modified is controlled by a trigger that get's pulled if a feature get's edited.

That should just about do it....
