This Macro will change the page creation date to match the Sent date on the email. This will then allow you to use the Sort by Date macro regardless of when you moved the mail message to OneNote. Please note that since this macro affects all pages within a Section, it cannot be undone. It will not affect Pages that do not follow the Outlook Email format. To Cancel this Macro, click on the red box in the upper right of this window.

Sean: Can you try to download it again? I had to do a small fix.

H- This was working great for PST time zone (-8) until Jan. The page date updates to the correct date, but despite putting in the correct time zone inset when asked, the offset would not change from EST (-5) and no matter what offset I put it the time did not change from EST.  I went on today, Jan 21 to see if there was an update as this was a great macro, and downloaded the update (well, attempted to). Now I keep getting an error in OneNote that the download did not download correctly and won't install.  Other macros I downloaded just before this one installed fine. I don't know if, as I see on the website this is a 32bit version and I have a 64 bit Windows 10, but the old version worked until a few weeks ago Jan. so that shouldn't be the problem. It would be great if you had any guidance. Thanks.
