Hi,

I have a date picker object in my word template. When I tried to print the form after filling it instead of the date, I get an error at the date field " Error! Not a Valid embedded object."

I am using Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control 6.0
How can I print the date in my form?

Thanks !

I advise against putting non-word controls on to a document. I know that it can be done, but they frequently, give problems because they are not specifically designed for the job.

You can insert a date field if you want the current date. This is done either with Insert/Field or Insert/Date and Time...  If you use the latter method, you can choose whether you want it to be updateable or not.

If you to select a date, I suggest that you put the Datepicker on a UserForm  and save the selected date onto the document.

I followed your advice. I put the datepicker in a userform and used a button to show/hide the form.

Thanks for your suggestion
