How to Identify date of file backed up used FBACKUP cmd?

Dear UNIX Experts,
I'm a newbie. My name is Budi.
I need some help from any body in this forum.

How do we identify the backed up date of file in the Back up tape ?
I did the back up using FBACKUP cmd.

I tried to googling it, but unfortunately no aimed solution that I got. Smilie
I've tried following cmds, but I could get the date that I want.

#LOG/exports> /usr/sbin/frecover -Norv -f /dev/rmt/0mnb
-rw-r--r-- oracle oinstall test_entire.dmp.Z

#/LOG/exports> /usr/sbin/frecover -f /dev/rmt/0mnb -x -N -v
-rw-r--r-- oracle oinstall test_entire.dmp.Z

Pls help, Thanks in advanced

BACKUP_VOLINFO(8)					       AFS Command Reference						 BACKUP_VOLINFO(8)

       backup_volinfo - Displays a volume's dump history from the Backup Database

       backup volinfo -volume <volume name> [-localauth]
	   [-cell <cell name>] [-help]

       backup voli -v <volume name>
	   [-l] [-c <cell name>] [-h]

       The backup volinfo command displays a dump history of the specified volume, reporting information such as the date on which the volume was
       dumped and the tapes that contain it. Include the ".backup" extension on the volume name if the backup version of the volume was dumped.

       -volume <volume name>
	   Names the volume for which to display the dump history. Include the ".backup" or ".readonly" extension if the backup or read-only
	   version of the volume was dumped.

	   Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The backup command interpreter presents it to
	   the Backup Server, Volume Server and VL Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument. For more
	   details, see backup(8).

       -cell <cell name>
	   Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see backup(8).

	   Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

       The output includes a line for each Backup Database dump record that mentions the specified volume, order from most to least recent. The
       output for each record appears in a table with six columns:

	   The dump ID of the dump that includes the volume.

       lvl The depth in the dump hierarchy of the dump level at which the volume was dumped. A value of 0 indicates a full dump. A value of 1 or
	   greater indicates an incremental dump made at the specified depth in the dump hierarchy.

	   The dump ID of the dump's parent dump. A value of 0 indicates a full dump, which has no parent; in this case, the value in the "lvl"
	   column is also 0.

       creation date
	   The date and time at which the Backup System started the dump operation that created the dump.

       clone date
	   For a backup or read-only volume, the time at which it was cloned from its read/write source. For a read/write volume, the same as the
	   value in the "creation date" field.

       tape name
	   The name of the tape containing the dump: either the permanent tape name, or an AFS tape name in the format
	   volume_set_name.dump_level_name.tape_index where volume_set_name is the name of the volume set associated with the initial dump in the
	   dump set of which this tape is a part; dump_level_name is the name of the dump level at which the initial dump was backed up;
	   tape_index is the ordinal of the tape in the dump set. Either type of name can be followed by a dump ID in parentheses; if it appears,
	   it is the dump ID of the initial dump in the dump set to which this appended dump belongs.

       The following example shows part of the dump history of the Backup volume "user.smith.backup":

	  % backup volinfo -volume user.smith.backup
	  DumpID    lvl parentID  creation date    clone date	    tape name
	  924600000 1	924427600 04/20/1999 05:20 04/20/1999 05:01 user_incr_2 (924514392)
	  924514392 1	924427600 04/19/1999 05:33 04/19/1999 05:08 user_incr_2
	  924427600 0		0 04/18/1999 05:26 04/18/1999 04:58 user_full_6
