How to set static create date in header of MS Word 2003 template?
Posted on 2010-09-01
I am writing daily logs at work and the boss wants me to log in the date and time of each entry. I have created a template and inserted the date and time into the header. The goal is to open the same template with the current date and time stamp, create the daily log, and save it as the daily log document for that day.
If I choose not to update the date automatically In the template, the date doesn't change so I have to go in every time and change it.
It works perfectly when I choose automatically update in the template. But when the boss goes into to review the daily log document, the date time stamp changes every time the document is opened.
How can I effectively insert the create date of the log into the header of a Word 2003 template so the date changes when the new document is saved off the template, but the date doesn't change when the document is reopened at a later time?
