Turning OFF the automatic update


J

Jean

When I re-open a file that included a date (like a
letter), Word automatically changes the date to today's
date. I don't want it to do that. I want it to retain the
original date on the letter. Suggestions?

Delete the date field and replace it with text, or with a CREATEDATE field,
or SAVEDATE or PRINTDATE as required. Word's help covers all of this.

Thank you for your help. I'm not sure if I've got it
fixed or not. I searched for help using "date" but I
would have never thought of "field." I know nothing about
fields obviously. I've never found the Help feature on
Word very helpful. Thanks again for your time.
