Q. I frequently need to revise my memos, and I’d like each to show the revision date. I know the last-save date will appear in Explorer, but I want a more convenient location—right in the document.
A. The easiest way to do that is to use the
Field tool. Put your cursor where you want
the date to appear and click on Insert, Field.
That will evoke the Field dialog box.
Select SaveDate (if you’re using Office 2002)
or Date and Time (if you’re using an earlier
version) from the field categories. |
Then, under Date formats: select your format choice and click on OK . From now on every time you open the document, the last date it was saved will appear.
