This excerpt of code could be added before the print method to add a date on the left footer and  version number on the right footer.
    'add to definitions
    Dim strVersion As String

    'Assign version number in code
    strVersion = "1.0.A"
    
    'Insert before Print method
    With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
        .LeftFooter = "&D"
        .CenterFooter = ""
        .RightFooter = "&F - Version " & strVersion
    End With

Open in new window


You'll need to assign the version number in your existing code, this is just an example.
