Most recent file modified in a folder, in a table

I'd like to use either an Excel spreadsheet or a Word table to do the following:

* I create a column that lists certain folder paths:
* C:\Users\dgoldstein\Documents\Unicorns
* C:\Users\dgoldstein\Documents\Milkshakes
* C:\Users\dgoldstein\Documents\ChocolateMilkshakes, etc.
* Excel or Word populates the column next to it with the most recent date that any file in that folder was modified.
* If the macro/field code requires that the folder path not have spaces, etc., I can adjust for that.

TIA,

Dan
