Dont use Word a lot lately, and have forgotten simple thing. How do I prevent the date of a letter changing to the current date when opened. e.g. If I saved a document on 5th Jan 1999, it will change to todays date when opened. This is no good if I need to know the date it was written. Cheers...whiz

if you right click on the document icon eg barryoneoff.doc click properties it should give you date created date modified and date it was last accessed
hope this is of some help

Go to 'Insert'-'Date and Time', and make sure the 'update automatically' box is unchecked
