    Automatic date input (Word 2002)

    When I restore a letter document from back up it does not retain the original creation date but updates to the current date, I need to have the original date as this is crucial, I have the update automatically box un-checked now but am not certain that it was un-checked on the original document, is there any way that I can restore with the original date? Thanks

    I guess this is up to your backup software, but if that won't do what you want then you can always change the date after restoring the backup. Have a look at the responses to <post#=332407>post 332407</post#> for some tools that will do this.

    You can insert a CreateDate field to show the date the document was created, or a SaveDate field to show the date the document was last saved. Both can be inserted using Insert | Field. Both field codes are in the Date/Time category.
