Dates in Word updating automatically

Hi - I've checked the Search facility, honest, but have already unchecked the Insert/Date&time update automatically box. I'm still getting my dates updating when I open letters. I've got Word 2000. Anyone got any more ideas, please?

Thanks

I know this sounds unlikely, stupid even if it does not work but .......... try it with the box checked (ie, wrong way round). This cured the problem for me. Must be some sort of dodgy coding I suppose. Hope it's the same for you.

Litlun - just tried it but no change, thanks anyway! Any port in a storm...

Try repairing Word. Insert your Office disk and after auto run use the repair option.

Have you got a field inserted somewhere/ A field is more 'adjustable' and could be set to 'print date' or 'edit date'. This would not shew as an inserted date that way!

Covered in Help under 'print date'.

Sorry for the delay - I sent the original enquiry from work. I don't think I have a field inserted anywhere - I don't think I know how to do it, but I'll have a poke around, just in case.

many thanks
