Opening some documents in Microsoft Works V9, I have found that the original dates on the documents have changed to the present date, with explanation. For example the document was printed on (say) 1st March 2013, its now showing today's date 27th August 2014.
The original documents were 'saved' on the day they were written, and all seems well till now. In the history, the original dates are shown, so this enables me to correct the error.
Any ideas or suggestions to what might have gone wrong, and if so, any suggestions to stop this happening again in the future?.
They were typed in as part of the original letter, and saved as such.
Having had a recheck, the date change error only seems to appear when the document is re-opened, what is even more stranger (to me) is the problem only seems to appear on a few documents and not all that I have checked.
It depends on how the dates are inserted. If it is a date field, as opposed to typing in the date, then they will update. In Word there is an option to stop the automatic updating. I Haven't used Works for so long that I cannot remember if that facility exists.
The dates are placed as part of the worded complete document, and 'saved' as such.
On the documents that I have opened, that had a date change, I have re-inserted the original date, and even double-click on 'save', to see if this as resolved the issues. Yet to still check this out, as I want to leave it for a day or so, to see what happens (if that makes sense?).
Woolwell - I keep explaining that I 'typed' the date in, as part of the document.
The rest of the document remains in the same form as originally typed, the date changes to the date the document is re-opened (ie) I open the document today, and today's date appears on a old document typed some time ago.
This doesn't happen with every opened document, only a few, hence my question why this is happening, when I have apparently done nothing different to change anything?.
I hardly use Works or write letters, but recently I have had need to return to past letters for reference.
