Default WAV timecode / time stamp question

To audio post people...A video editor included an audio clip in my edit window that needs to be fixed but I can only fix it if I go back to the original session the clip was from. So how do I see the original timestamp

from the original session of the region I'm trying to fix so I can go back to that session and fix the clip? If only I had original time code of the clip that'd help me out hugely. Right clicking on the region doesn't give me any useful info, when I click on the timestamp it shows user timestamp of 5 seconds. I suppose this is another question but when you import an OMF file into your .ptf session does protools automatically timestamp all regions to their current locations? If I highlight all my regions in my regions list and click on "timestamp" and timestamp all those regions will it add timecode to all those clips based upon their locations in the edit window?

Default Re: WAV timecode / time stamp question

If you use an embedded OMF all the original stamps are stripped i.e. stamped at their current location. Ask for a referenced OMF to maintain the original meta-data.

If it´s only one single clip also a simple BWAV export will do instead of an OMF.
