Microsft word 2003 auto date update
Posted on 2006-04-28
I have searched extensively on your sight and just can't come up with a solution to my issue.
When we open up our word documents the original creation dates change to the current date.
I understand if I turn Go to insert - Date and time and uncheck Update Automatically it should correct the new documents going forward from changing automatically.
Couple of questions,
Please understand I have never used Macros or normal.dot so please be as specific as possible.
How do I know if there is a macro set up or normal.dot is automatically set up to do this vs. just shutting off AUto update?
When I open word and then open Normal.dot it just opens up a blank word document so I don't think there is any special formatting in this file.
I need a way to open up our current saved documents with auto update embedded to not change the date when we open them.
Is there a Macro that I can add to everyone's computer that when they open the documents this date does not change that is seemless to them?
Or a third party plug-in?
If there is can you please tell me from start to finsish specifically how to do this?
Thanks in advance for your help!
