Yep.

Very easy:

Here is a nice explanation already typed, but basically you want {={Date} + 14}

That is fairly simple if you use VBA:

e.g.
ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Cells(1,1).Range.text = Format(DateAdd("d",14, Now"), "dd/MM/yyyy")

If you want to use a Word fields it can be much more difficult. See this site:
