Date arithmetic is very difficult in Word fields. It is much easier to create a separate field in the datasource.

It's been three months since the question and the first comment, so I guess we can take it that the advice was taken.

wittyslogan,
that link points to a VB(A) method, where date arithmetic is easy. Do you have a way of using it in mail merge?
