I'd like to have a date automatically inserted in a Word template (in a Memo heading) so when I open the template (File, New), todays date is there. The completed letter is then saved as a Word document. That seems straightforward but if I open the saved document some dayslater, Word puts in that current day so I don't know when I originally wrote the letter. I've tried inserting the Date through Insert, Date and Time and through Insert, Field, Date and Time but the opened Word document always picks up the current days date. I though there was an option to right click the date and Update Field option that would update the date but only if you requested it but haven't had much success there either.
The problem is when you open a document saved earlier. The date changes to that days date. To have the date to appear in the template I have Update Automatically switched on so the current date appears when the template is opened. Thanks anyway.
