Quick Access Toolbar Icon Not Working

I went into the Quick Access Toolbar commands and added Current Date and Current Time to the toolbar.
However, I don't see how to use them. They are grayed out.

That only works if you are in a header or footer field.  Go to the "Insert" tab and then "Header & Footer".  Then, you can insert it.

Items are typically grayed out when that option isn't available on that particular screen. Do you have a spreadsheet or workbook file open? Open for editing?

Never mind...I read the question wrong...the above answer is correct...this is the header/footer time feature you have on the quicklaunch bar...there is another one for all the date/time formulas, if you want it. just edit your quicklaunch bar. (and use the "all commands" on the "choose commands from"  filter  to see it )

Not through the page layout options.  You have to be in that "view".  Go to the "Insert" tab at the top of the ribbon, then click on "Header & Footer".

Thanks, that worked. That's great.  Where would that be documented?

in most programs nowadays the buttons change depending on the need...whether the reference is to a file, a single document, a part of the document (header/footer) ...the available buttons change. It's kind of common knowledge...

I don't know where it is officially documented, but the closest I have been able to find is to go to the "Help" icon and search for "grayed out".  I found an article called "Video: I can’t use the commands on the ribbon", which talks about why they may be grayed out and not useable.
