Word 2007 Revision History

I use Vista.  This is a follow up to Q 25838669.  from the Advanced Properties, how does one select a field to add from the Custom tab.  I want to add the Date completed field.  And I selected the Date value.  But the Add button is greyed out.  How do I add this field to my document or any of the fields that are listed in the Custom tab. Thanks.

Also, once you've entered something in the Value box and clicked the Add button, to add this information as a field within the document, do the following:
  • Go to the place in the document where you want the custom property to appear
  • Click the Insert ribbon
  • Under the Text group, click Quick Parts
  • From the list of option, select the Field
  • From the Field dialog box:
    • Select Document Information under the Categories list
    • Select DocProperty under the Field Names list
    • Select the custom property (e.g. Date completed) from the Property list
    • Click on OK
You have to put something in the Value box.
