Info about canceled card needed

Postby commdiver » Thu Jun 14, 2012 12:49 am

The card with the longest history on my credit file was recently canceled due to inactivity (I used to buy a pack of gum every other month, but forgot to do so this time). I am still young and have had the card for three years. If I have my bank activate the card again, will my credit file still show that it is three year old, or will it be as if I just got it?

Thank you in advance for any help.
