If you have a template or other type of document that regularly requires the date to be updated, you can make Microsoft Word 2010 or 2007 display a date that automatically updates. This is much easier than remembering to update it manually yourself.
1. Select the Insert tab.
2. Under the Text group, click Quick Parts > Field.
3. Under the Categories box, click Date and Time.
4. In the Field names box, select CreateDate, PrintDate, or SaveDate.
5. Select the date and time format that you want in the Date formats box.
6. Click OK when ready.
Now the date in your document will be inserted into the document and will update automatically based on the selection you made whenever you print or save the Word 2010 or 2007 document.
